Instant Decay

Instant Decay

This plugin makes leaves decay instantly when destroying logs from trees.

It uses the code which Minecraft itself uses to detect leaves and logs.

It also triggers and obeys the LeavesDecayEvent so other plugins can prevent these leaves from decaying if they need to (for whatever reason).


  • Uses Minecraft decay logic
  • Drops are exacly the same as normal decay
  • It will not affect leaves placed by players
  • 10% chance for each leaf to make a break particle+sound effect
  • Plays nice with other plugins by sending leaf decay events
  • Uses only Bukkit API so it will not break with future updates !


  • /instantdecay disable - disables the plugin's events and remains disabled after "reload"
  • /instantdecay enable - re-enables the plugin
    Commands have permission "instantdecay.admin" and is defaulted to OP.

    First of all, I love this plugin! It was exactly what I needed for my 1.7.10 server. Now that I am running Spigot 1.8 R01, it no longer seems to be working. Any chance for an update?


    EDIT: I take that back, it is working JUST fine. I am an idiot, the way my farm was laid out it didn't seem to be working, but it is.

    Thanks again!!

    Because this doesn't affect 1.7 trees and leaves, I've updated it here.

    • Updated to include 1.7 trees
    • removed usage of deprecated API methods

    Edit: Direct link to compiled binary has been removed. If you do want a build, feel free to PM me. Bear in mind that these builds would not be approved by Bukkit staff and could contain malicious code.

    1.7.2 is the ultimate test for it though as there has been the most ever changed in the minecraft code
