“In the lofty treetops of Donkey Kong Country, you'll find a deserted town of wooden plataforms and huts, origin unknown. But while the original inabitants may be gone, the place is teeming with Kremlings and their friends, ready to ambush anyone who trespasses here. The barrel cannons are particularly tricky in the treetops!”
Donkey Kong Country manual, page 22

Vine Valley is the third world in Donkey Kong Country, located after Monkey Mines. It is a large pine forest area of Donkey Kong Island featuring several forest areas, a treetop village, and a temple ruins. In the center of the world, there is a large bay connected to the ocean. The boss of this area is Queen B. From the world map, Vine Valley appears to take place during sunset.

In the Game Boy Advance version, Vine Valley's world map was significantly redesigned, and it takes place during the daytime.

In Donkey Kong Country Returns, there is a level with the same name in the Forest.

Boss level: Bumble B. Rumble
