There are many varieties of trees that spawn in the world. Some trees that are spawned during world creation share saplings with other other trees such as kapok, large kapok, and old kapok. That means there are some versions of trees that cannot be regrown. These tend to be the larger version of trees such as the old kapok.


Very rarely will saplings drop from cutting down trees. To acquire more saplings you must break the leaves manually. The shears can help in this process by breaking all leaves in an area. When placed on any soil the sapling will take anywhere between 5 and 8 days to grow into a tree. Saplings are currently the only way to propagate trees.

Trees can be harvested by cutting them down with an axe. When doing so, the logs of the tree will turn into items starting from the top. If the axe runs out of durability before all the logs in the tree are converted to items, the process stops as the tool breaks. Logs can be used as fuel and will burn for different lengths of time depending on the wood type. Logs can further be cut into planks with a saw or into firewood with an axe.


Bamboo is a special subclass of tree. Just like with trees the leaves drops saplings that can be planted to create bamboo farms. Bamboo, when cut down, drops bamboo stakes instead of planks. The bamboo stakes may be crafted into bamboo planks but bamboo planks cannot be used in recipes which require planks, but can be burned as fuel in a firepit.
