How to Make Trees Grow Faster in Minecraft

Trees are essential blocks in the Minecraft game as you can craft many other blocks using this item. They provide wood, which is needed to craft various tools and items. There are a variety of trees available in the game such as oak, spruce, and birch tree, and each has a unique look and appearance. So if you are running short of trees and want to grow your own then we are going to teach you how you can do that faster.

How to Get the Sapling to Grow Trees

Trees can be grown by planting the respective sapling which is the part of the tree itself that you want to grow. For example, if you want to grow an oak tree then you need to find the oak sapling and the same case for every other tree as well. If you want to get these saplings naturally then you need to cut trees but the chances of getting one are almost 1-5 percent per tree which means that you need to cut lots of trees to find the sapling.

You can also get these saplings from the chests as well. For example, you can get the oak sapling from the village plains chest, spruce sapling from the village taiga chest, and acacia sapling from the village savanna chest.

How to Grow Trees

You can grow trees by placing the sapling on the ground and initially it will be very small but it will grow eventually after some time.

Growing trees doesn’t need anything else other than the sapling and after that, you need a few days for it to be fully grown.

If you want to speed up the process and don’t want to wait for it to be fully grown naturally then you need to put the bone meal on the sapling which is natural fertilizer in the game and is used to speed up the process of growing crops and trees. For making a bone meal you need a composter where you need to put the seed that can be easily gotten by cutting grass.

Whereas you can make a composter by placing 7 wooden planks on the crafting table as shown below.
