Massive trees in Fangorn

Looking ahead they could see only tree-trunks of innumerable sizes and shapes: straight or bent, twisted, leaning, squat or slender, smooth or gnarled and branched...

The Fellowship of the Ring


A tree is a common type of generated structure in the realm of Middle-earth. Some species of tree are inventions of Tolkien's (such as Mallorn and Lebethron) and the rest exist in our world. In total, there are more than 40 species of trees that you can find in Middle-earth.

All of the trees have their own wood types, saplings, leaves and fallen leaves to make forests as detailed and realistic as possible. Many of the trees are different shapes and sizes when compared to the 'normal' trees that you'll find in Vanilla Minecraft, which also makes them more real. In addition, you can find rotten logs in many forests. There are also fruit trees added by the mod, which have a good chance of dropping various fruits when their leaves are destroyed, or when they decay naturally.

Note that not every tree you come across in certain forests is actually a tree...

  • Fangorn ('massive': see screenshot above): Beech, Jungle, Mahogany, Oak

Party TreesEdit

Named after the large party tree located near Bag End in Hobbiton, where Bilbo made his last speech prior to leaving for Rivendell, the mod's party trees spawn in most regions, especially in "forest" and "forest_dense" variants. For those who wish to grow their own party tree, they can do so using 9 saplings planted in a 3*3 grid by right-clicking the central sapling with bone meal. Be careful not to get entangled by the fast growing roots that will support these trees!

TriviaEdit

  • The anglo-saxon eeoh-rune (= letters EO) means "yew-tree", a conifer not included in the Mod. Tolkien used those ᚱᚢᚾᛖᛋ for some texts in the initial drafts of "The Lord of the Rings", later on, he replaced them by cirth runes.
The yew is a tree with rough bark,
hard and fast in the earth,
supported by its roots,
a guardian of flame and a joy upon an estate.

Old English rune poem


The ash is exceedingly high and precious to men.
With its sturdy trunk it offers a stubborn resistance,
though attacked by many a man.
