The Forest Sector (referred to as the Forest Region in Season 1) is a Sector of Lyoko. It is mostly a complex series of paths intertwining between thousands of trees, but raised high above the Digital Sea. Large open areas are not as common as those in the Desert and Ice Sectors. It also has a lot of hollow tree trunks which connects areas of the Forest Sector and has often saved the lives of the Lyoko Warriors.
Despite the fact that paths are narrow in this sector, X.A.N.A. often sends its largest monsters, such as Megatanks and Krabs, to attack Lyoko Warriors when they are trying to deactivate a tower there. It is also the only sector in which X.A.N.A. directly attacked a tower, once in Code: Earth and again in Contact.
The appearance of this sector changed noticeably between Seasons 1 and 2. In season 1, the lighting was much darker and the color tinted much more towards brown. In Season 2, the lighting and terrain were lightened, with the colors leaning more towards a neon green. These changes remained present for the reset of the series.
In Marabounta, Jeremie materialized a monster with the same name into this sector with the intention of having it attack and destroy X.A.N.A.'s monsters. However, it also attacked Aelita, and the other Lyoko Warriors after they attack it to defend her.
The Forest Sector was recreated between the episodes William Returns and Double Take by Jeremie and Aelita. It made its first reappearance in Opening Act and the new Forest appears to have new areas added on such as the Forest arena.
The Forest Sector is numbered as Sector 3, as it is the opposite of Sector 1.
