Oak wood.

This article is about the Block obtained directly from Trees. For the more efficient building block produced from these, see Wood Planks.

Wood is very common. It makes up every tree in the Minecraft world. There are six main types: Oak, Birch, Spruce, Dark Oak, Acacia, and Jungle. These are obtained from their respective trees. Their crafting is not affected, even though they make different colored Wooden Planks. However, some items created from different planks will have exactly the same texture.


  • Oak Wood is medium brown and has vertical streaks.
  • Spruce Wood is a darker version of Oak Wood.
  • Dark Oak Wood is a darker version of Oak Wood, but more gray than Spruce Wood.
  • Acacia Wood has gray bark with an orange center.
  • Birch Wood is white with small black patches. The cross-section of the log shows white bark around the edge.
  • Jungle Wood is chocolate brown with horizontal streaks.

Special Uses

  • Jungle Wood is the only block that Cocoa Beans can grow on (right click)
  • All Wood blocks can be smelted in a Furnace to make Charcoal.




  • Despite it being less efficient than using Wooden Planks, these blocks are often used to make poles.
  • Spruce Wood is sometimes called "Chocolate Wood."
