Chop Down Updated 

Chopping through a tree's trunk makes the tree fall down opposite to where you are standing.



  • Falldown opposite direction along the axis (Diagonal fall was removed because you can't have the tree fall diagonally and look as realistic)
  • Multi threaded capability meaning even for really large trees it will not cause you an issue in multiplayer.
  • Handles any size tree including naturas redwoods (though there is a delay the server is still responsive while it calculates the fall)
  • No dependencies
  • Different trees should not get mixed up, got a birch next to an oak tree, chop down the birch and only the birch tree and leaves will fall.
  • In same type forests it does its best to calculate which leaves and branches should belong to the tree you are chopping
  • You must chop all the way through the trunk to fell the tree, not just 1 block
  • Server only allows a player to chop 1 tree at a time down, you could not spam for example serveral redwoods at once (though achieving this would be hard in the first place it cuts all chance for abuse)
  • Trees can be felled from any point on the trunk
  • Trees still do the fell in creative, want to make your creative world look more realistic just go chop some random trees down.
  • Highly configurable, see below. 



Custom Trees: You can define custom trees from pretty much any block

Use to create custom trees, please report any configs you create to me so I can add the compatibility for everyone to use.
Type /cdu showBlockName to toggle the display of block names to use for the logs and leaves (OP only)
None standard trees can normally be accommodated by using the radius/trunk radius/leaf limit/possible trunk settings, if you are unsure what to change to match a tree just ask.
To see the current configs for compatible mods look here:

Set the max blocks before the tree is moved manually : maxFallingBlockBeforeManualMove: Default 1500.

If the tree contains more than this number of blocks, rather than creating falling entities it will place the blocks in the world where they would have landed, this is to stop entity overload on multiplayer servers. Most normal trees are less than this number of blocks.

This generally only effects trees like Natura Redwoods.

Trees that fall as falling block entities no longer pop off and will instead break passable blocks. 

 Set the max blocks to move per tick: Default 150

The default value works quite well generally. It is meant to reduce the load by spreading out the dropping of large trees. 

 Drop Leaves: Default FALSE

Leaves are broken off instead of falling with the tree.

List Tools that should not cause a fell:

Such as tinkers lumberjack, anything that vein mines really.

 List players classes that can fell trees:

This stops issues with fake players and fake player based harvesting. The defaults cover some common mods, if you find that you cannot fell trees it might be a mod that overlays your character, please contact me so I can check.

Allows cutting down an entire tree in one go...

Old video, a load of stuff has changed since this, but you will still get the idea.
