Many different types of trees
A Tree is a common plant found on most biomes. They are procedurally generated, meaning that the appearance of their bark and foliage is selected from a range of possible sprites. Despite their wide range of appearances, most trees function essentially the same. When cut with the Matter Manipulator or any other appropriate Tool, a tree will leave behind several units of Wooden Log from which the player may craft a variety of objects and items.

The majority of trees also drop Saplings which can be planted in dirt to grow new trees. Each Sapling takes the appearance of the tree it grows into, allowing saplings from different trees to be easily differentiated. Not all trees will drop saplings. Some trees will only drop one sapling and some can drop many. A sapling will always grow into the same styled trunk and leaf tree as the tree that originally dropped the sapling.

When a tree is examined the composite parts will form a description that can be used as a name. The name will be in the format "Trunk Type with Leaf Type".

Biome Specific Trees

There are special types of trees in certain mini-biomes that drop materials other than Wooden Log:

Valid Soils

Though various trees (including Cactus and Kelp "trees") start out planted in different soils, all saplings can be planted in all valid soil types. These are all the block types in which saplings can be planted:


In addition to these blocks, saplings can also be placed on some blocks which do not appear normally but can be spawned in with admin commands.


Trunk Types

These are some of the basic types of trunk or bark. They come in a variety of colors and many have 'snow' versions. These are the parts of the tree which drop the main harvest material of the tree, usually Wooden Logs.

Leaf Types

These are some of the basic types of leaves or foliage. They come in a variety of colors and many have 'snow' versions. These are the parts of the tree which drop saplings, so a tree without leaves will usually not drop any saplings.
