Old Growth Spruce Taiga in Minecraft


Old Growth Taiga is a cold forest biome characterized by its tall spruce trees. Old Growth Spruce Taiga is a variant that comes under this biome. They are characterized by their tall trees with a larger number of leaves present.


Description


The Old Growth biome gets its name from the older and bigger trees found here. These trees offer a lot more wood when compared to the normal trees found in other biomes. The spruce trees found in this biome resemble those found in Old Growth Pine taiga, but with more leaves. These leaves take away the arrowhead appearance found in Old Growth Pine Taiga and cover more of the tree trunk. This increases the chances of saplings dropping when cutting down trees, which increases sustainability. This variant is also slightly colder than the regular biome, which means that snowfall starts at layer 160 instead of layer 200.


Mobs


Old Growth Pine Taiga has the usual passive mobs of glow squid, sheep, pigs, chickens, cows, wolves, rabbits and foxes. All the foxes found are red foxes, and almost half of the rabbits are brown. The hostile mobs seen here are witches, spiders, endermen, zombies, zombie villagers, creepers and jockeys. Bats are found in cave-like structures formed (if any).


Conclusion


This biome would not be the easiest to live in due to the large trees found. These trees are harder to cut down due to their size but their number of leaves increases the chance of saplings dropping, which leads to sustainability. They may offer more unique views compared to regular taigas as well.


FAQs


Q. How rare is this biome?

A. This biome is considered to be quite uncommon by players.


Q. Do hostile mobs spawn during daytime in this biome?

A. No, even though the trees are larger and have more leaves, hostile mobs are not seen during the daytime.
