Wood Planks are used to build things in Minecraft, and there are different kinds. Where can you get each Wood Plank?
Wood Planks are the basic building block in Minecraft. They are used to make almost everything. It’s the first thing you should gather because it’s important for making tools, housing, and early smelting fuel.
Even at the end of the game, you will still need Wood Planks to make tools for Netherite. Wood Planks should always be going into your storage chests, whether it’s for useful or aesthetic reasons. Here’s an outline of the different types of Wood Planks in the game, how to get them, and which plank you should use.
Bamboo has been a block in Minecraft for a while, but it wasn’t until recently that it was changed to include more building blocks that you can use to build different things. You can now make Bamboo Blocks, which are just like regular wooden planks, and you can even strip them to change their color.
To find Bamboo, look around Jungle biomes, where the plant may be growing in small groups. Also, if you look around your Minecraft world, you might find a Bamboo Forest, which is full of huge groups of these tall plants.
You may not see many Mangrove trees in the game because they only grow in Mangrove swamps, which is a good name for them. Still, these trees have a unique look because they usually have a lot of leaf blocks that come together at the top to make a big crown.
The long roots that grow from the bottom of these trees and reach the ground are another way to tell them apart. Sometimes, these roots are the only thing holding the tree to the ground, so you have to climb to get to the logs to make them into planks.
Oak is the most common type of tree in Minecraft, so Oak Wood Planks are the most common type of Wood Plank. Oaks come in three different kinds: the normal Oak, the Fancy Oak, and the Swamp Oak. Even though they look different based on the biome, the Wood Plank is the same for all of them.
Oak can be found in many biomes, such as the Bamboo Jungle, Dark Forest, Forest, Jungle, Jungle Edge, Plains, River, Savanna, Swamp, Wooded Badlands Plateau, and Wooded Mountains. Because Oak trees grow near rivers and in plains, there should be at least one in almost every biome. Oak tree farms are very useful because they produce apples as well as Oak Wood Planks, but it is best to force the trees to grow in a uniform way.
Birch trees are harder to find than Oak trees because they only grow in a small number of biomes. There are two kinds of birch trees: the common small ones and the rare big ones. Both are made of the same Birch Wood Planks when broken down.
Birch trees only grow in the Forest, Birch Forest, and Dark Forest biomes. Birch trees are most common in forest biomes, which are also the best place to find them. They also make great tree farms because they grow quickly, but all they produce are wood planks and saplings.
Jungle Wood Planks are made from trees that only grow in a small number of biomes. There are three kinds of Jungle trees: normal Jungle trees, the Mega Jungle tree, and the Jungle Bush. Mega Jungle trees can grow up to 30 blocks tall, while a Jungle Bush is normally just one or two logs on the ground.
The Bamboo Jungle, Jungle, and Jungle Edge biomes all have jungle plants. Mega Jungles are the best place to find Wood Planks because of how big they are, but they aren’t in Jungle Edge. Even though Jungles are hard to find, just one tree can give the player a lot of Wood Planks. If you want to start a Coca Bean farm, you should also look for jungle trees.
Spruce trees are pretty common and can be found in many different types of ecosystems. Most of the time, they grow where Oak trees don’t, which makes them a great choice. There are four different kinds: Spruce, Pine, Mega Spruce, and Mega Pine. Mega Spruce trees make the best tree farms for getting Wood Planks because they are big and don’t have a lot of leaves.
The Giant Spruce Taiga, Giant Tree Taiga, Snowy Mountains, Snowy Taiga, Snowy Tundra, Taiga, and Wooded Mountains biomes all have spruce trees. All of these biomes have standard Spruce trees, but only Giant biomes have Mega Spruce trees.
The Dark Oak tree is one of the rarest in the game, and it’s very hard to grow them in a farm in a good way. This is because Dark Oaks need four saplings to grow and produce an average of four to six saplings per tree. But they do produce apples, which can make the work worthwhile. They only come in one basic type.
Only in the Dark Forest biome will you find Dark Oak plants. You’ll have to look around for a while before you find a Dark Forest area. But Woodland Mansions can only be found in Dark Forests. You can use a treasure guide to find this biome.
Acacia trees are a lot less common than Oak trees, but not nearly as uncommon as Dark Oak trees. Because of how they grow, they are also hard to grow on tree farms. Still, many players like Wood Planks because of their unique color, which is red. They come in three different kinds: the normal Acacia, the Acacia with multiple canopies, and the straighter Acacia. Which one will grow is completely random and can’t be changed in any way that matters.
Acacia plants only grow in the Savanna biome, which is about as rare as the Plains biome. There is no way to find a Savanna biome in the standard game, so you will just have to look around. Acacia trees aren’t good for tree farms because they don’t have much to offer other than wood planks and saplings.
Crimson Stem is a special Wood Plank that comes from Huge Crimson Fungus. They make a reddish-purple color that looks nice. There is only one kind of Huge Crimson Fungus. With Bone Meal and Red Fungus on Nylium, you can make a tree farm.
The only place you can find Crimson Stems from Huge Crimson Fungus is in the Crimson Forest. The only place you can find a Crimson Forest is in the Nether, so you’ll have to explore this dangerous area to find one. If you live in the Nether or just want Wood Planks with this color, you can use these.
The other kind of Wood Plank you can find in Minecraft’s Nether world is Warped Stem. It is a bluish-green color and comes from a Huge Warped Fungus. In a tree farm, you can use Bone Meal on a Warped Fungus or Warped Nylium to grow your own.
Warped Stems only grow in the Nether, just like Crimson Stems. You can only find them in the Warped Forest biome. You will have to search the dangerous Nether to find this biome. They are a good choice if you live in the Nether or want Wood Planks of a different color.
Cherry Blossom trees were one of the types of wood that longtime fans of Happy Wheels asked for the most, and once you find the new Cherry Blossom biome, it will be clear why. There are a lot of pink petals in these beautiful woods, which creates a nice atmosphere and gives you a lot of bright pink wood.
There’s no way to always find these pastel woods, so if you want to build with this wood, you’ll have to explore and keep an eye out for the color pink.
