Snowy weather in a Taiga

The Cold Taiga is a type of Overworld Biome that consists of a Spruce Tree forest and is often covered in snow. No other tree types are found in a cold taiga. Water will freeze in a cold taiga biome, which will create large amounts of ice. Cold taiga hills are a technical biome that can rarely occur in cold taigas. Cold taigas have snowfall instead of rain. Snow will not appear under the trees, and, instead, it will appear on the trees' leaves. Cold taigas have more trees while the Tundra has more snow.


  • Cold taigas will also have occasional snow weather like Tundras do.
  • Nearly all water bodies in a cold taiga will have Ice Blocks at the surface.
  • Cold taigas (and its variants) are the only sources of Spruce Wood, a dark colored wood type, aside from Creative Mode or a Bonus Chest when starting a new world.
  • Cold taigas can commonly be located beside Extreme Hill Biomes and Forest Biomes.
  • Wolves can be more commonly found in Cold Taigas and Tundras.
