      Description

      The bug

      When trees, kelp, bamboo, and huge mushrooms generate near biome boundaries, they will generate rough edges on chunk boundaries instead of generating together with the other plants near the biome boundary. Kelp and bamboo will also generate strictly within chunks, inside their respective biomes. Some other plants will only attempt to spawn in certain chunks, but they can still spread out of the chunk (which might also be a bug). This can cause ugly world generation on biome boundaries, like patches of jungle that lack trees near a river. Chunks with trees tend to force the trees as close to the edge of the chunk boundary as possible, causing wide trees to often generate in between chunk boundaries as a side effect to this glitch.

      How to reproduce

      Use the seed -7552322433294524801 and teleport to 778 86 1094 to go to a hill that generated partially treeless due to patchy world generation, or teleport to 1018 58 857 to see a place where the kelp refuses to generate within a specific chunk.
