Forests comprise the majority of the surface world, and are where the player usually initially spawns (although sometimes the spawn point is in a snow biome). The landscape of a forest includes lots of grass, plenty of trees, several lakes ranging from small to large and, often, Sunflowers, Dayblooms, and Pumpkins are found growing in this biome. There is a small chance for low tier ores to spawn on the surface in a forest. The various types of ores that can be found consist of tin, lead, copper, iron and sometimes, tungsten or silver.

The background of forests are randomly generated upon world creation. Regular Forests can be erased by the spread of Corruption, Crimson, and The Hallow.
