Allows forests and plants to spread and/or die over time


Compatible with




This mod alters Minecraft's tree and forest system to be more realistic and eventful.

In a Nature Overhauled world, forests will grow, flourish, then die; they will expand, then contract; saplings will grow from trees, fly on the wind, then spawn a new tree where they fall. Saplings can die in this process if the world's conditions are unfavorable. A desert will kill a newborn sapling and will stop forests trying to spread into them.

The plants, mushrooms, cacti, reeds and pumpkins of each world will also reproduce and spread their kin far and wide, forming intricate ecosystems. Based on the biome they are in, their growth, death and spread rates change.
