Trees generate naturally in the world as well as grow naturally from saplings. A sapling must be planted for a certain amount of in-game days depending on the type, and have at least a light level of 9 before there is a chance for it to sprout into a tree. Trees are generated in biome-like areas, with each area having two primary trees, and a single secondary tree. Note: It is possible for both primaries and the secondary to all be the same type of tree, resulting in a forest of just that species. What type of trees can spawn in an area depends on the climate.
Trees require the use of an axe to cut down. Chop the bottom-most log to fell the entire tree. If the axe does not have enough durability to fell the entire tree, as many logs as possible starting from the top of the tree will be chopped and the axe will break. Leaves disappear without dropping anything. Using a stone axe yields fewer logs than using a metal axe.
Sticks & Saplings
In order to get sticks and saplings from leaves, they must be destroyed before cutting the tree down. Using a scythe makes stick gathering more efficient by destroying a 3x3x3 area of leaf blocks at once, centered at the broken block. Using the Scythe decreases the drop rate of sticks and saplings from 6% to 4%. Breaking leaf blocks is one of two ways to obtain sticks from trees, the other being hitting placed or natural logs with any hammer to make it drop 1-3 sticks.
Different trees have different properties, summarized by the following table. Some trees may be more desirable for specific purposes than others. For example, Douglas Fir trees are relatively large and fast growing, making them an excellent choice to farm for making charcoal.
|Tree||Growth Speed||Burn Length||Burn Temperature|
|Ash||7 to 8 Days||Shorter||Dark Red***|
|Aspen||8 to 9 Days||Shortest||Dark Red*|
|Birch||7 to 8 Days||Long||Dark Red**|

¹There is currently no way to obtain Acacia or Kapok saplings other than cheating them in.
