Where to Find and How to Make Acacia Wood in Minecraft

Trees are one of nature’s treasures, being also the backbone on which most constructions take place, and in Minecraft, the most beautiful tree you can find is the Acacia Tree. The Acacia tree is one of the many variants of trees in Minecraft, and they are very easy to spot because of their unique Orange color. They of course have a variety of uses when you do find them, but where exactly “can” you find and make them?

The Savannah biome is one of the most unique biomes in Minecraft and it is also the birthplace of most Acacia trees. Savannah biomes are not very difficult to locate, since they are mostly close to deserts or plains biomes. Furthermore, a player can make Acacia wood by chopping down an Acacia tree.

Acacia trees grow naturally in the Savanna biome and they are one of the most unique trees in Minecraft. Just like other trees in Minecraft like the Dark oak tree, an Acacia tree can be cut down and converted into other useful products. These products can also be used to craft other items or build structures with a unique and gorgeous look.

However, due to their unique nature, some players often feel that the Acacia tree is a rare species of tree in Minecraft when it is not. Just like I said earlier, the tree spawns naturally in the Savanna biome and can even be grown artificially under the right circumstances. Since the Savanna biome is also not rare, then players can find this tree even just a few minutes after they spawn into a world.

There is no such thing as too much information, so even though you know where to find an Acacia tree, you still need to know how to work/craft with it. Today I will be telling you everything you need to know about the Acacia tree, so just relax and read on.

Acacia trees naturally spawn in the Savanna biome. Although, if you want to spare yourself the time of searching for this biome, you can always use the Savanna seeds, 5436, 12947, 666, to spawn directly into one. 

The trees are usually about 8 blocks high, with a unique diagonal trunk, and some occasional canopies. They are also formed distinctly unlike any other tree in Minecraft.

Unlike other trees in Minecraft like the giant jungle and dark oak tree, the Acacia tree’s branches grow in a different pattern. In some cases, the Acacia trees could have multiple straight logs and a curved top, sometimes the curve is at the bottom, and others are curved both at the top and bottom. Typically, the canopy is just made up of two to three layers of leaves.

There are three types of Acacia trees in Minecraft. 

The first is a common/regular acacia tree, it has a single canopy and a diagonal trunk. Second is the multi-canopy Acacia tree, its trunk forks around the middle and each end of the canopy. Last is the second form of the multi-canopy Acacia tree, it features a straight trunk with a small canopy at the top, from which a second Trunk and a higher canopy grow out from. 

Both the Multi-canopy Acacia trees grow taller than the regular acacia tree.

How Do You Get Acacia Wood in Minecraft?

Players can obtain Acacia wood from Acacia trees which spawn naturally in the Savanna biome. Acacia wood was among the two types of wood introduced into Minecraft in update 0.9.0, alongside the dark oak wood. They can be smelted into charcoal and can also be used to craft acacia planks on a crafting table.

How to Plant Acacia Trees in Minecraft

Where to Find and How to Make Acacia Wood in Minecraft

If you don’t want to go through the stress of finding the Savanna biome every time you need Acacia wood, then you should consider planting the tree. To plant an Acacia tree or any other tree in Minecraft, just follow these easy steps.

Step 1

Collect the Saplings from the tree. Unlike other crops in Minecraft, tress can only grow from Saplings, so you first need to acquire the Saplings of the Acacia tree before proceeding. The easiest way to harvest a sapling is by cutting down the tree with an ax, to do this, simply right-click and hold down on the tree with an ax in your hand.

You can of course use your bare hands to cut down a tree but it is time-consuming. Once you have completely cut off the woodblocks from the tree, the leaf block starts to vanish, some of which has a chance to drop sapling. It is important to note that not all the leaf-textured blocks will drop a sapling, so harvesting a lot of saplings could take some time.

Step 2

Next, you have to choose a location you would want to grow your acacia tree. You can of course plant the tree anywhere but I would advise that you grow the tree very close to your spawn point, or player base, or your house to make the process more convenient for you in the long run. Once you have a location, make sure that the soil is either made up of dirt, Podzol, or grass.

The location also needs access to light, so planting the tree outdoors seems to be the most logical thing to do unless you have an alternate light source like torches and glow stones. Bear in mind that trees do not ground while they are obstructed by other blocks directly above them.

Step 3

Now that you have the ideal location and criteria fulfilled, you can plant the Acacia sapling. You first need to hold the Sapling in your hand then right-click it on the soil you choose between Dirt, grass, and Podzol.
