Wood, also known as logs, is a naturally occurring block found in trees, primarily used to create wood planks. It comes in six species: oak, birch, spruce, jungle, dark oak, and acacia.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Wood can be broken by hand, but using an axe will speed up the process.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Oak wood blocks generate as part of houses in plains or savanna villages. Spruce wood blocks generate as supporting beams of witch huts.

Oak wood can be found in 81.7% of bonus chests, in stacks of 1–3.

Acacia wood can be found in 81.7% of bonus chests, in stacks of 1–3.

Trees[edit | edit source]

Wood blocks of all six types generate naturally as part of trees. Trees can also be grown using saplings.

    Requires the burning of wood into charcoal in a
    furnace
    . Thus, you will need 8 cobblestone and burning material. The cobblestone and fuel are ignored for the purpose of this conversion.
  2. a b
    Because one plank cannot be crafted into two sticks, this crafting recipe requires two wood for two units.

Fuel[edit | edit source]

Wood logs can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1.5 items per block. However, it is far more efficient to craft one of the wood blocks into wood planks: each of the 4 planks will burn as long as the log would have, for a total of 6 items.

Data values[edit | edit source]

The wood blocks are defined by block IDs and block data. They also have block states which may replace block data in the future.

Note that when a wood block is placed, it changes its facing parameters, placing in the direction relative to the block it is placed on.

Block data[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

Classic
0.0.14a_01 Called log when first introduced, oak wood was one of the first blocks in Minecraft.
0.0.15a Very small texture change.
0.24_06 Breaking log now drops 3-5 wood planks.
Indev
February 23, 2010 Breaking log gives the block instead of planks.
Alpha
1.2.0 Wood would now only be destroyed by fire if it had several sides simultaneously burning. If only one side was burning, the fire and wood block would last forever. This was a bug but made for nice fireplaces. Netherrack can also be used this way, as it burns forever.
Beta
1.2 Added birch and spruce wood
1.4 Wood and wood planks will now burn and be destroyed if any one of the sides are lit on fire. This can happen in 1.6.6 again but may not happen to all wood.
1.5 With the addition of birch and spruce saplings, their respective wood types become renewable resources.
Added "Getting Wood" achievement for chopping then pick up wood.
Official release
1.2.1 12w03a Added jungle wood.
1.2.4 Different types of wood now produce different colors of planks when crafted.
1.3.1 12w30d All types of blocks of wood are now rotatable, with the wood placed with the inner side facing the player (similarly to pistons).
1.4.2 12w38a Wood blocks now have new sounds when being walked on and broken.
Orientation of placed wood blocks is now determined by which face of another block they are placed against, similarly to levers.
1.6.1 13w24a As a feature of resource packs, each log has its own top, meaning that log tops can now be colored separately.
1.7.2 13w43a Added two new types of wood: acacia and dark oak.
1.7-pre Gave the texture of wood tops its own unique texture for each type of wood.
Pocket Edition Alpha
0.1.0 Added oak, birch and spruce wood.
0.3.0 Wood can now be collected.
0.8.0 build 2 All types of blocks of wood are now rotatable, with the wood placed with the inner side facing the player.
Jungle wood was added to the creative inventory.
0.9.0 build 1 Added acacia wood and dark oak wood.
Jungle wood can now be obtained in Survival mode as part of jungle trees.
Gave the texture of wood tops its own unique texture for each type of wood.
Pi Edition
0.1.0 Added oak, birch, and spruce wood.
Console Edition
TU1 Added oak, birch and spruce wood.
TU9 Spruce wood and birch wooden can now be crafted into spruce and birch wood planks, stairs and slabs.
TU12 Added jungle wood, which can be crafted into jungle wood planks.
TU14 All types of blocks of wood are now rotatable, with the wood placed with the inner side facing the player (similarly to pistons).
Prior to this update, in PlayStation 3 Edition wood with special data values only looked like it is in PC in inventory or when held, and when placed looked completely different.
TU19 Updated the textures for birch and jungle wood.
TU27 Added acacia and dark oak wood to the creative inventory.

Issues[edit | edit source]

Issues relating to "Wood" are maintained on the issue tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dark oak and acacia logs share a new block ID separate from the old logs, called log2, because all the other data values on the previous log block were occupied by rotated variants (red sandstone slabs suffered a similar fate). There are still 2 remaining data values on the block that cannot be obtained. The next two trees, if more are added, will likely use these values.
