I'd estimate that about 95 percent of my Minecraft worlds begin with me collecting a single block of Oak Wood. It's the mother-block - the block from which everything else in the game develops. Without collecting wood, it's almost impossible to play Minecraft. Seriously, try playing Minecraft without wood. It'll be about as much fun as playing blindfolded, or with me screaming "USE WOOD YOU FOOL!" into your ear the entire time.

Duncan Geere[1]

Log is a naturally occurring block found in trees, primarily used to create planks. It comes in six species: oak, spruce, birch, jungle, acacia, and dark oak.

Stripped log is a variant obtained by using an axe on a log.

Obtaining[edit]

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

Natural generation[edit]

Oak

Oak logs generate as part of houses in plains villages, and as supporting beams of witch huts.

Oak logs can be found in 28.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 25.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3.

Stripped oak logs generate in plains villages.

Spruce

Spruce logs generate as part of houses in taiga and snowy villages.

Spruce logs can be found in 28.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3, and in 65.6% of taiga village house chests in stacks of 1–5.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 25.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3, and in 69.3% of taiga village house chests in stacks of 1–5.

Stripped spruce logs generate in snowy tundra villages.

Birch

Birch logs can be found in 28.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 25.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3.

Jungle

Jungle logs can be found in 28.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 25.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3.

Acacia

Acacia logs generate as part of houses in savanna villages.

Stripped acacia logs generate in savanna villages.

Acacia logs can be found in 28.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 50.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3.

Dark Oak

Dark oak logs can be found in 28.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3, and in all pillager outpost chests in stacks of 2–3.

In Bedrock Edition they can be found in 50.0% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–3.

Dark oak logs can generate in pillager outposts as a pile of logs, and as part of watchtowers.

Mixed

Oak, spruce, and dark oak logs generate as masts in shipwrecks.‌[Java Edition only]

Stripped oak, birch, spruce, acacia, jungle, and dark oak logs generate as masts in shipwrecks.‌[BE & LCE only]

Oak and dark oak logs blocks generate as part of woodland mansions.

Trees[edit]

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

Stripped logs[edit]

Using an axe on a log will turn it into a stripped log.

  1. a b 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.

Smelting ingredient[edit]

Name Ingredients Smelting recipe
Charcoal Any Log or
Any Stripped Log +
Any fuel


Fuel[edit]

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

Smelting log into charcoal is slightly better: each charcoal will smelt 8 items, but the charcoal itself needs to be smelted. The net items smelted therefore is 7. Also, the increased need to load and unload items will usually result in some loss of smelting time.

Data values[edit]

Oak, spruce, birch, and jungle log and wood have the ID name minecraft:log and are further defined by their block data or block state.‌[Bedrock and Legacy Console editions only] Acacia and dark oak log and wood blocks have the ID name minecraft:log2 and are further defined by their block data or block state.‌[Bedrock and Legacy Console editions only]

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

Logs only consider the axis; a sideways log placed while facing north will not have a top texture rotated 180 degrees from a log placed south.[2]

Issues[edit]

Issues relating to "Wood", "Log", or "Stripped log" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

  • Dark oak and acacia logs previously shared‌[Java Edition only] or currently do share‌[Bedrock Edition only] a 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 8 remaining data values on the block that cannot be obtained.‌[Bedrock Edition only]
