A forest is an area with a large density of trees. Forests can be found in all regions capable of sustaining tree growth. Forests generally contain a large number of different trees growing to different heights, combined with an underbrush, which makes most use of sunlight. A forest in its natural form is home to many animal and plant species (known as a biome, and the weight of the biomass in any given square kilometre is high compared to other biomes.

Several types of forest exist. Among them can be noted the taiga and the rain forest.
