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:
- Trees in Colourful biomes drop Rainbow Wood
- Trees in Mutated biomes drop Striped Wood
- Trees in Foundry Mini-Biomes drop Metal Coated Wood
- "Trees" in Giant Flower Biomes take the appearance as giant flowers and drop Giant Flower Petals
- Cactus style trees in Desert Biomes drop Cactus
- Trees in Toxic Biomes drop Plant Fibre instead of wooden logs
- Large mushroom trees in Mushroom mini-biomes drop mushrooms instead of wooden logs
- Kelp in Ocean, Toxic and Arctic planets drop kelp for cooking
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.
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.
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.
Some trees only appear in unique combinations.
