The Hardwood forest is very simillar to the Bluffs, mainly because it contains a very simillar variety and abundance of the same vegetation, but the mainly difference between the two is that the Hardwood forest has less elevations, which determines it's location close to the river, while the Bluffs are located at the edge of the map (not counting with the ocean). The vegetation of the Hardwood forest is mainly composed by tall thin trees with large canopies, providing shade. The Hardwood forest is obviously different from the cypress forests and redwood forests, as it contains mainly oak and willow looking trees, instead of being composed by conifers and other wide trees. This environment is shady and slightly bushy, which is perfect for the lurking Acheroraptor. Chamops are slightly less easy to see, but Palaeosaniwa are not rare. Medium-sized herbivores, like the ornithomimids and Pachycephalosaurus are sometimes found here, as well as the gigantic Tyrannosaurus.
