    ChopTree - Chop trees like cacti or make logs move down while chopping
    Version: 1.24

    There seems to be a plugin conflict where the client crashes with a blue-white screen and keeps crashing for minutes after that.
    If you encounter the error please give me a list of the plugins you are using, with enough lists I will be able to outrule what causes it. Please also tell me if you are using any client-side mods.

    Thanks very much to Arcwolf for developing version 1.24!

    Tested with Craftbukkit build [740], [766], [798], [818], [1000].
    Supports: Permissions v. 2.7.2 (Phoenix) and mcMMO v. 1.0.07.
    Please give me feedback, ask any questions you like and/or provide suggestions!
    Thank you!

    • Lets trees act like cacti - remove a block and all blocks above are yieled too.
    • Or you can make that log blocks move down one by one instead - no more climbing trees.
    • Works with all three tree types (they all yeild their own wood).
    • Also works with "big" trees that have multiple branches - makes felling them a lot easier.
    • Restrict using this plugin to certain tools only.
    • Supports mcMMO and Permissions.
    • Only works on trees, houses made of logs are safe!
    • Chunk protection to make your tree houses safe.

    This plugin was requested by Britich and is inspired by the Canary plugin RealTree by billyoyo.
    However, it is not just a simple port of that plugin, it was made from scratch after Britich's description.

    Approach tree...

    ...and punch it.

    All logs will be yielded.

    The leaves will decay like normal.


    Even though I added a lot of things for version 1.2 it will act like the original one if you don't change any settings - with the exception of players are able to toggle the plugin.​
    To run this plugin just copy it into your plugins folder. On first startup it will create a ChopTree folder and a file, which you can edit.​
    There will be a ChopTree.players file which saves player toggles and a ChopTree.chunks file which saves protected chunks.​

    Properties File:
    Show Spoiler

    The file will look like this when first created:
    # -ChopTree Properties-
    # You can add or change the command and toggle command aliases here.
    # Because of technical limitations the console commands will always be "ChopTree" and "ct", but the in-game comments will be taken from here.
    Command = ChopTree, ct
    Toggle = ToggleChop, tc
    # Here you can change the options (can also be done in-game).
    ActiveByDefault = true
    UseAnything = true
    MoreDamageToTools = false
    InterruptIfToolBreaks = false
    SupportMcmmoIfAvailable = true
    TreeFellerNeeded = false
    LogsMoveDown = false
    OnlyTrees = true
    # -Material List-
    # If the "UseAnything" option is false, the plugin will take the items you can use to chop trees with from here.
    # You can either put in the material's name or its ID.
    mat = WOOD_AXE
    mat = STONE_AXE
    mat = IRON_AXE
    mat = GOLD_AXE
    mat = DIAMOND_AXE
    Command and Toggle can be changed manually by just adding more aliases for them, seperated by commas. Note that if you run the command from the console it will always have the aliases "ChopTree" and "ct", no matter what it says in your file.
    You can also remove either of the lines to disable the command for players completely.

    The options can be changed manually in the file too. To find out which option has which effect look at the "Commands" section below.

    The material list will only be used if the option UseAnything is false. In that case you can specify which items players can use to chop trees with this plugin, other items will not trigger plugin effects (except chunk protection). You can either use the item ID or it's name.
    If you want to make tree chopping more costly you can only allow gold axes for example.
    List of item IDs on Minecraft Wiki, list of all item names in the Bukkit documentation.

    Very helpful plugin! Any change that giant mushrooms could be chopped in the same way? That would be a nice addition.
  3. Offline


    The server i play on has this plugin and they have the problem where their houses made of wood break completely when they try to break a single block. They get rid of Chop Tree and it stops doeing it right away. can you please fix this problem?

    Possible make a command that anyone with the choptree permission node can use a command that disables the ChopTree ability untill they do the command again?

    Yea, how else will I chop down redpower Trees in less than two years? :p
    And Imagine, Going at a redpower tree with 7 friends, with Industrialcraft chainsaws, which would still take at least a minute.

    Hey, thanks for the plug!
    I updated my plugin TreeAssist to 1.1-R4 a few days ago, and I redid my whole tree-removal section, and it works great! Come check it out at or BukkitDev!

    does this work with MC 1.2

    Probably not. I know it didn't work with a precise version, but there are a couple other plugins that do the same thing, like TreeAssist.

    Can update your plugin?
  15. Offline


    Sweet! I was wondering if this plugin was still in the works. I am planning on restarting my own server for friends after about 6 months and this is one of the few "must-have" plugins that I had in mind. I'm glad to see it still alive and kicking.

    btw, I recommend adding [1.2.3] to the title so that people will know that it's updated. I couldn't tell until I looked at these recent posts.

    Thanks for keeping up the good work. This is definitely one of the simple concept plugins that really smooth out gameplay.

    im in the same boat
    it needs to be updated for 1.2.5
    any ideas on when that will be?
  25. Offline


    I'm using Tekkit's server, which has ChopTree installed, and I've tried and failed several times to get mod items such as the Ruby Axe to work with Choptree. The default file doesn't let it work, and when I edit the file to add in the values reported by NEI, it still refuses to drop the whole tree when I break it with the Ruby Pickaxe.

    Edit: Something that might help is a "/choptree Add" command or something similar, to add the currently held item to the choptree list so that it can be used for chopping trees.

    I have been looking around for a mod like this to use on my tekkit server.
    Tried TreeAssist aswell , but my IC tools dissapear on that one.

    So I decided to check out the code and make a few changes.
    Works with the latest bukkit API. I couldnt get my head around the mcMMO stuff, since some classes have dissapeared and I don't use it anyway, so I commented out that code.

    Tested on the latest Tekkit server and works for me, so I guess the least I can do is share the plugin untill the owner comes back.

    You can find the source in the GIT repo I forked.

    So heres the


    Edit: Removed a check on the Permission option. Now permissions work in default or PEX or your favorite permission manager :)
