There are six main species of tree ⃢₀ₓ oak, birch, spruce, jungle, acacia and dark oak.
Trees vary widely in height, from a bare minimum of 1 block of wood for bush trees, ranging up to a maximum of 30 blocks for giant jungle trees.
Tree canopies are composed of leaf blocks, and grow 1 block higher than the highest wood block (except for that of the giant oak tree, whose leaves grow 3 blocks higher). The canopy may begin from the ground and go up to 6 blocks from the ground. Tree canopies are generated from roughly spherical clusters of leaves about 5⃢₀ₓ7 blocks across, centered on sections of trunk or branches. Leaves must be supported by an adjacent trunk (or leaf blocks connected to the trunk), otherwise they will disappear.
Giant oak, dark oak and giant jungle trees grow branches (wood blocks connected horizontally, vertically or diagonally to the trunk or other branches). Most of the time, a single tree will have between one and six branches, and each branch will have between one and six wood blocks. Acacia tree branches do not cover their branches in this way. Small oak, jungle, birch, and spruce trees lack branches.

Tree saplings have a 1/20 chance (1/40 if they are jungle saplings) of dropping from leaf blocks when they decay or are destroyed. There are six species of saplings, corresponding to the six main trees: oak, birch, spruce, jungle, acacia and dark oak.

The sapling must also have at least 4 blocks of space above it; the amount of required space varies between the different species of trees. If there is a ceiling above a sapling, this will limit the maximum height of the tree that can grow from that sapling.
If multiple saplings are planted next to each other, each one will grow as long as the leaves from the other grown saplings do not block too much of the sunlight. Artificial light (torches, etc.) can still be used to grow them if this happens.

Contents 1 Generation 1.1 radius around the player make attempts to grow at random intervals. For any given tree this can work out to about 3 growth attempts per minute. When a tree attempts to grow, it first checks that it has enough light, then randomly chooses which variant of that species of tree to become; for instance, an oak sapling will choose to grow as either a small or large oak tree.
Once a tree has passed a light check and chosen a size to attempt, it checks if there is enough space for its chosen size. If it encounters an obstruction during this check, it fails to grow and must wait for the next pass before it can attempt to grow again. This means that a tree in an open field with enough light will grow relatively quickly, but a tree in a cramped tree farm that stunts its size may make several attempts before finally growing.

In order to grow a 2ℂₗ2 tree (be it spruce, jungle or dark oak), four saplings must be placed adjacent to each other in a square.

The largest jungle and spruce trees reach 31 blocks. Dark oak trees are typically 6-8 blocks. Some materials block the growth of the large trees.
Leaves and wood blocks removed from a tree will not grow back over time.

For the rarer, when their leaf block is destroyed.
They come in several variants with widely different properties:
- Small oak trees are the most commonly encountered.
- Large oak trees are more uncommon, and have a distinct look and different growth requirements. They often have "branches", outgrowths of wood on the sides of the trunk, or even freestanding and surrounded by leaves. They require 4⃢₀ₓ14 blocks of open space directly above the sapling to grow (air or leaves only) but can otherwise be completely enclosed on all sides.
- A large tree form (the balloon oak tree; see below) exists with a single leaf block layer above the minimal 4-block trunk, allowing a tree to rarely grow in a vertical space with a height of only 5, but otherwise the maximum trunk height is 2 less than the vertical space, making the practical minimum height 6.
- A large tree can be forced to be grown if a "brace" of non-solid blocks (e.g. glass, or half-slabs) is placed around where the trunk will be, one block off the ground.
- A rare variant colloquially known as a "balloon" oak, which are large trees generated with the smallest size possible, may be grown. They consist of tall trunks and leaves that formed a spherical shape, similar to a balloon. They will grow even if there is a block obstructing them; they simply grow around that block. They usually contain 4 blocks of wood, but some may contain more.
- In swamp biomes, naturally occurring oak trees tend to grow in the water. Unlike oak trees in other biomes, which typically have a slightly conical or pointed canopy, all swamp trees have round, flat topped canopies. Also unlike other oak trees, these have a much wider range in foliage. They tend to be covered in vines Vines Transparency Yes Luminance No Blast resistance 1 Tool Renewable Yes Stackable Yes (64) Flammable Yes Drops Itself Data value dec: 106 hex: 6A bin: 1101010 Name vine Vines are non-solid blocks, 1⁄16 of a block in thickness, that trail down to the ground.
Oak trees require a 1ℂₗ1 column of unobstructed space at least 4 blocks above the sapling to grow (5 blocks including the sapling itself). Oak trees are unique in that they can still grow when the base and trunk is enclosed on all sides. Their growth will not be hindered by wood, leaves, dirt and saplings.
Spruce trees, also known as pine trees, grow from spruce saplings and have growth patterns and requirements very similar to birch trees, though they look very different. They are mainly found in the taiga A river bisecting a jungle biome. At the top right is a forest. A river running through a mesa biome with mesa plateaus, with a savanna biome in the bottom right. “ In case you biome, but they may also generate in extreme hills, cold taiga, and mega taiga biomes. Spruce wood has the same texture as oak wood, but it is a darker shade of brown; its leaves are more dense, with a darker and blueish tone.
There are several different forms of these trees that may grow from any spruce saplings:
- A regular variant with a height similar to oak trees.
- The leaves tend to grow in discrete rows rather than the more spherical arrangement of oaks and birch trees
- A fairly tall variant of spruce trees that generate in a matchstick style, with only a few leaves at the very top.
- A short variant in which the leaves are arranged in a roughly octahedral shape, similar to a lollipop.
- A large 2⃗2 variant that generates in the mega taiga biome and can be grown from spruce saplings arranged in a 2⃗2 square, with or without bone meal. They are commonly called "redwoods" or "mega spruce trees".
- These spruce trees have few leaves, concentrated at the top. Mega spruce trees with leaves only at the top can be found in every type of Mega Taiga except for the Mega Spruce Taiga, which has trees that have a lot of leaves on them.
- The northwest block of the top layer of the 2⃗2 mega spruce tree trunk is always taller than the other three blocks.
In an amplified taiga or mega taiga, some of the spruce trees will generate with snow on them, just like in the other cold biomes.
Like birch trees, they do not grow branches. When height-constrained, the trunk height maximum is two less than the roof. Headroom of 9 blocks will limit the tree to trunk height of 7, which enables harvesting from ground level.
1⃗1 spruce trees require a 5⃗5 column of unobstructed space at least 7 blocks above the sapling to grow (8 blocks including the sapling itself). No horizontal clearance is needed at the base of the tree and 1 level above (a sapling planted in a hole 2 blocks deep will still grow).
2⃗2 spruce trees require a 5⃗5 column of unobstructed space at least 14 blocks above the saplings to grow (15 blocks including the saplings themselves). This column is centered on the northwestern sapling. A 3⃗3 area is required at the base of the tree (the level of the saplings).
Birch trees look fairly similar to small oak trees in terms of height, and are most commonly found in birch forest biomes.
There are two types of birch trees: a shorter tree that can be grown by the player with birch saplings; and a taller, more rare tree which only generate in birch forest M biomes, and cannot be grown from saplings. Birch trees grown from saplings grow to be 5 to 7 blocks tall, while birch trees in the birch forest M biome can be 10 blocks or even taller.
Birch trees require a 3⃗3 column of unobstructed space at least 6 blocks above the sapling to grow (7 blocks including the sapling itself). Additionally, birch trees require 5⃗5 layers without obstruction for the top 3 layers of its final height. No horizontal clearance is needed at the base of the tree (a sapling planted in a hole 1 block deep will still grow).
- Birch leaf distribution
Birch trees will always grow around 50 to 60 leaves. The leaf distributions are shown visually to the right, each table cell representing one `slice` of the tree viewed from above. The transparent leaves represent areas where leaves may grow, but do not always. The growth pattern, in detail, is as follows:
- The topmost row is one above the height of the tree, and always has exactly 5 leaves: one above the wood block and four orthogonally adjacent to it, forming a + shape.
- 5 leaves
- The second row is the top of the wood trunk, and also has 4 leaves adjacent to it. Diagonal to the wood block will be a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 3 additional leaf blocks.
- 5 - 7 leaves
- The third row has the wood in the middle, surrounded orthogonally and diagonally by leaf blocks. Those 8 leaf blocks are also surrounded orthogonally, for an additional 12 leaf blocks. One can think of this as a 5⃗5 space where every block has leaves except the four corners. These corners are randomly filled with between 0 and 4 leaves, though having all four filled is very rare.
- 20 - 24 leaves
- The fourth row generates with the same rules as the third, and thus has a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 24 leaf blocks.
- 20 - 24 leaves
- The fifth and sixth (bottom) rows contain no leaves, only the wood block in the center. If the tree is 6 or 7 blocks tall, the additional 1 or 2 rows at the bottom will also be just a wood block.
- No leaves
Small oak and 1x1 jungle trees also have this arrangement of leaves.
Jungle trees are exclusive to the jungle A river bisecting a jungle biome. At the top right is a forest. A river running through a mesa biome with mesa plateaus, with a savanna biome in the bottom right. “ In case you biome. Jungle tree leaves drop jungle tree saplings, which appear tall and skinny like the jungle tree itself. When planted in grass or dirt they grow into a jungle tree with a 1⃗1 trunk, but you can place them in a 2⃗2 formation and they will grow into a jungle tree with a 2⃗2 trunk that are found naturally in the jungle biome.
1⃗1 jungle trees require a 3⃗3 column of unobstructed space at least 5 blocks above the sapling to grow (6 blocks including the sapling itself). Additionally, 1⃗1 jungle trees require 5⃗5 layers without obstruction for the top 3 layers of its final height. No horizontal clearance is needed at the base of the tree (a sapling planted in a hole 1 block deep will still grow).
2⃗2 jungle trees require a 5⃗5 column of unobstructed space at least 11 blocks above the saplings to grow (12 blocks including the saplings themselves). This column is centered on the northwestern sapling. A 3⃗3 area is required at the base of the tree (the level of the saplings).
There are also much smaller, bush-type variants, which only have 1–2 logs and a few leaves. They are typically 1–3 layers tall and heavily cover the floor of jungle biomes. In the PC and Console editions, they consist of oak leaves and a jungle log, while in the Pocket Edition, they consist of jungle leaves and a jungle log.
Jungle tree saplings only drop from jungle tree leaves 2.5% (1/40) of the time; half that of other leaf types, making it more common to find only one or even no saplings from a grown tree.
Acacia trees are only found in the savanna A river bisecting a jungle biome. At the top right is a forest. A river running through a mesa biome with mesa plateaus, with a savanna biome in the bottom right. “ In case you biome. Acacia trees are around 8 blocks tall and featureSpecial attraction unique diagonal trunks, and may occasionally have multiple canopies. The way the tree forms is unique. Some have many straight logs and a curve at the top, some at the bottom, and some curve from bottom to top. Typically, the canopy consists of just two layers of leaves, sometimes three. The acacia leaves share their texture with oak leaves, although they have their own name in creative mode. Their color, be that as it may, varies on what biome you are in. You can grow the following three acacia trees:
- The common acacia tree, which has a diagonal trunk and a single canopy.
- The multi-canopy acacia, where the trunk forks around the middle of the plant and each end ends in a canopy.
- Another form of multiple canopy acacia tree, which has the straight trunk and a lower canopy, then the trunk grows out of the smaller canopy and has a second higher canopy. These trees are much taller than the common acacia tree.
Acacia trees require a 3ℂₗ3 column of unobstructed space at least 7 blocks above the sapling (8 blocks including the sapling itself). Additionally, acacia trees require 5ℂₗ5 layers without obstruction for the top 3 layers of its final height. No horizontal clearance is needed at the base of the tree (a sapling planted in a hole 1 block deep will still grow).
Dark oak tree
Dark oak trees are found only in the roofed forest A river bisecting a jungle biome. At the top right is a forest. A river running through a mesa biome with mesa plateaus, with a savanna biome in the bottom right. “ In case you biome. They have thick, 2⃗2 trunks, and will generate dirt blocks under their trunk if generated on a steep cliff. Dark oak trees nearly always generate with irregular blocks of wood connected to the trunk - these represent large branches. Growing these trees requires four dark oak saplings arranged in a 2⃗2 grid; they will not grow if planted individually. Dark oak trees grow at a much faster rate than most other trees.
Dark oak trees require a 3⃗3 column of unobstructed space at least 7 blocks above the sapling to grow (8 blocks including the sapling itself). This column is centered on the northwestern sapling. Additionally, dark oak trees require 5⃗5 layers without obstruction for the top 3 layers of its final height. No horizontal clearance is needed at the base of the tree (saplings planted in a 2⃗2 hole 1 block deep will still grow).

In Pocket Edition Pocket Edition Author(s) Mojang AB Jens Bergensten Aron Nieminen Daniel Kaplan Tommaso Checchi Shoghi Cervantes Jason Major Daniel Wustenhoff Tomas Alaeus Mikael "Slicedlime" Hedberg MicrosoftTechnology company Studios 1] Platform(s) Written in C++ 2] Latest version 1.1.2 , trees can generate as one of two variants of the normal tree. Both of these generate naturally and can be grown out of normal saplings.
These trees have the standard growth pattern of any other tree, however all exposed logs are covered with vines. They can generate as dark oak, jungle, spruce, or small oak trees.
These trees consist of a single upright log, or stump, which can generate covered with vines and/or mushrooms of either color. 2-6 block long logs lying on their side are often found 1-2 blocks from the stump, occasionally with mushrooms on top. The trees can be composed of oak, spruce, birch, or jungle logs.
Depending on where the tree generates, the color of the leaves may differ. An example being if an oak tree is in a colder biome, it will have an aqua-green hue. Although if it is in a dry biome, it will have a mustard yellow hue. Be that as it may, not all leaves change color depending on where they are.
A typical, everyday tree. Its wood can be crafted into some Planks. These trees are arguably the most common, and as a bonus, are the simplest to farm. They are also one of the few kinds of trees that drop apples when the leaves are destroyed.
There are multiple forms of oak trees:
- Small Oak. Small oak trees are anywhere from three to five blocks highℂ₂₠in the trunk, surrounded with leaves. Standing at the base of the tree, the player will always be able to chop all of the blocks down standing on the ground, without having to make any pillars to jump up on.
- Large Oak. A big version of the small oak with large branches, giving the ability to hold more leaves. Their main trunk can be as small as seven, and as tall as ten, not including branches. Many "branch" logs are found in the leaves not connected to the trunk at all. These tree are considered the most "difficult" to harvest because of the jumping and pillar making usually involved.
- Swamp Tree. An oak tree with vines covering it. It also only grows in Water. It is impossible to place saplings in water to make them grow, and the saplings of this tree grow into either one of the above forms.
- Oak Bush. This has only one block of wood and the rest are leaves, most of which touch the ground. The saplings from this tree grow into only the top two trees.
Similar to the oak, but rarer. Its wood can be crafted into bright wood planks, which show some almost unnoticeable brick-like markings. These trees have leaves very similar to oak trees. They can also be found in Birch Tree Biomes.
This tree comes in 3 different appearances:
- Spruce. These types of trees occur in Extreme Hills and Taigas, where they can have anywhere from a lot to a few leaves.
- Mega spruce. They are 2x2 trees with a few leaves on top, similar to regular spruce trees with few leaves. They occur in Mega Taiga biomes.
- Redwood. Appearing solely in Mega Spruce Taigas, they are 2x2 trees that are similar to regular spruce trees with many leaves.
While giant spruces resemble real-life redwoods more than the in-game redwoods do, the names are derived from their biomes (the hilly variant of Mega Spruce Taiga is Redwood Taiga Hills M).
Jungle Trees have 2 natural formations. One is a short tree that resembles an oak tree. Vines and Cocoa Pods can be found growing on these. The second is a very tall tree, with a 2x2 base. These tall trees can contain over a stack of logs each. Vines are usually found growing on jungle trees.
These trees spawn near the plains biome. These trees have 2x2 bases and can be as high as 16 blocks high. This is an excellent source of wood, should one need large amounts. Dark oak wood can be crafted into dark wood planks, which have a dark brown tint. These trees can only be grown by placing 4 Dark oak saplings in a 2x2 pattern.
These trees spawn in the Savanna biome. They have a reddish-grey outside and a red inside. When crafted into planks, the result is light red planks. Savanna villages are composed of this wood.
