About the Taiga Forest Edit
The Taiga Forest is an uncommon biome comprised of lush close-packed trees. This biome also includes lakes, sand, and of course, grass.
This is the only biome where you can find the Taiga variant of the the Log and Grass blocks.
This biome is a great place to start your Colony, as it has many resources, very close together - the only downside is that you would have to do a lot of work clearing trees to make an area suitable for building.
