The forest area is, as suggested, a dense forest area with large amounts of plantlife. The area's tree population is so dense the usually only narrow passages through them are possible for transportation. In the background of many levels in the forest, there are treehouses akin to the ones found in the Vine Valley world of the original Donkey Kong Country. Also, there are many patches of grass on the walls to be found, which can be clinged. Large red mushrooms can be jumped on and are bouncy.
The forest itself is a naturally undisturbed habitat. The majority of the levels take place on the higher regions of the trees. Like other worlds, there are many plants in the background can be Ground Pounded for items, and in this world there are many vines to be swung on. Some vines are apparently aware someone is on themselves as they can move and react to it (specifically, in "Wigglevine Wonders"). Also in the background of both levels and the map screen many tiki remains appear to be in forest, perhaps suggesting the forest was the tikis' habitat before their banishment.
There is a naturally good enough climate to support the forest. While none of the levels have shown rainfall, mostly some light rays from the sun visibly come through the treetops.
Throughout the levels, the entire way through appears to be by pre-made wooden walkways high above ground. Rarely do the Kongs get through the forest on land. Some areas are filled with mushrooms that can be jumped on.
- This world bears a resemblance to Forest Frenzy music in Donkey Kong Country, as the title of the music is called "Forest Frenzy Returns"
