Saplings are young trees that eventually grow, making wood and fruit renewable.
Saplings have a chance of being dropped by leaves when destroyed or decayed. You can also get them by using Bone meal on a grass block.
Saplings also have a chance of spawning when bone meal is used on grass.
Saplings can be walked through by entities.
Saplings grow into trees when placed, if certain conditions are met. In order for a sapling to grow, it must be placed in an open area on grass.
In these conditions, after some time it will naturally grow into a tree. It can also be done instantly by shift+left clicking with bone meal. Upon growth, the sapling has a random chance of growing as a fruit tree, containing either apples, oranges, or lemons in the leaves, or just as a tree with plain leaves.
|It is better to grow the tree, as that could give 20 or 24 wooden planks, smelting an item each.|
