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.
