Fast Leaf Decay

Attention for Minecraft 1.14 users!

Due to a breaking change in Forge Mod Loader, users of Forge Mod Loader version 1.14.4-28.0.45 and onwards should use FastLeafDecay v17.

Users of older versions of Forge Mod Loader for Minecraft 1.14 should continue to use FastLeafDecay v16.



The original server-side only mod that gets rid of those annoying leaves floating in the air!


A simple Minecraft Forge mod that speeds up leaf decay after you cut down the wood in a tree. By default it will only take about five seconds before all leaves are gone.


Mod review, thanks to beardedgoof!




Only servers need to have this mod, so if you're playing on a server that has it installed you will not need to install it on the client. You can have it installed on the client, though it will not have any effect.



This mod will speed up leaf removal of trees from the following mods, in addition to the default Minecraft trees:

  • 1.7:
    • Natura
    • IndustrialCraft 2
    • Minefactory Reloaded
    • Auto Sapling
  • 1.8:
    • Auto Sapling
  • 1.9:
    • Industrialcraft 2
    • Biomes o' Plenty
    • Auto Sapling
  • 1.10
    • Auto Sapling
    • Biomes o' Plenty
    • Forestry
    • IndustrialCraft 2
  • 1.11
    • None tested yet, will probably work with most mods.
  • 1.12
    • Biomes o' Plenty
    • Natura
    • Tinkers' Construct
    • Twilight Forest

Mods that haven't been tested should not pose any issues. If those mods add trees that are related to the vanilla Minecraft trees, their decay will be sped up as well. Other mods that don't inherit the Minecraft leaves functionality (such as Thaumcraft) will not work unless I specifically support them.



To configure the decay rates, check out the config in the serverconfigs folder of your world.
