Tree Feller

Tree Feller v1.2
Last updated January 8, 2014


TreeFeller is a plugin that allows you to harvest trees at a much faster rate. It allows you to break the bottom most block of a tree which will "fell" the tree. It has multiple modes allowing for simple tree trunk felling all the way to destroying an entire forest.


You can chop an entire tree down by sneaking / standing (depending on your config) and using an axe (or any item you choose to put in the config) to cut the lowest block the tree.

This plugin supports mode switching. For example, if you have the permissions


It will default to classic, but you can switch your mode with commands. Check out the commands for more info.


Go to this page for the permissions.

    I'm not supporting Spigot 1.7.9.

    I tested it in bukkit 1.7.9 and it worked just fine.

    Just in case the error isn't related to Spigot though, what are the errors it's outputting?

    We're using Spigot 1.7.9, and Tree Feller's throwing up errors left right and centre. And appears to be working intermittently. Anyone else having similar issues?

    @cooltrain7: Go

    durability-mode is suppose to be true or false.

    If it's set to true, your tool will take 1 damage per block. If it's set to false, it will take 1 damage per hit (no matter how many blocks were broken in that 1 hit).

    I need to change this because it's not very configurable and the wording is confusing.

    Works like a charm now. ;)

    However, found a small problem with Acacia trees: since this type produces trees where the logs are not always adjacent but placed diagonally with one gap horizontally and one gap vertically these trees are not always cut down with one axe swing and the upper part is left over.

    Not a major issue since all the other tree types seem to work great.

    @maystorm_real: Go

    To answer both your questions, I have enabled mode switching. It defaults to classic when you log in.

    The command for this is

    /treefeller mode <mode>

    Replace <mode> with one of the following





    @frankmiaw: Go

    This works on any minecraft 1.7 version. While 1.7.4 is the latest Minecraft version, it is only a client update. Every plugin for 1.7.2 will work with 1.7.4 and vice versa. I just decided to say it works with the latest minecraft version. In general, the version it says it works with doesn't mean much. You'll find plenty of old plugins around Bukkit that say they work with something like 1.4, but still work with 1.7.

    Edit: I finally got around to adding the mode switching info to the main page.

    I don't get mode 'full' to work. It only cuts all logs vertically in a straight line but doesn't cut any logs or leaves attached to the sides.

    I am using PermissionEx and have defined following permissions:

        - treefeller.use
        - treefeller.mode.full

    Furthermore I added the ID's for Acacia and Dark Oak as follows in config.yml (in addition to the default ones):

      - '162:0'
      - '162:4'
      - '162:8'
      - '162:1'
      - '162:5'
      - '162:9'
      - '161:8'
      - '161:9'

    I'd think that with these settings a tree can be brought down with a single axe swing. However, as said above, only one line of vertical logs are cut down, no sideway logs and no leaves at all.

    Any idea what I am missing?
