The Woodlands biome is very similar to the Vanilla forest biome, although some aesthetic changes like leaf color, fallen logs and toadstools have been added. There are also no Birch Trees in this biome.
It is one of the easiest biomes for survival due to the plentiful supply of wood and logs. Like other forest biomes, farm animals are common but can be hard to track in the dense biome. It is a great biome for survival beginners, but beware of the Poison Ivy that can spawn here.
