Greatwood Sapling is a block added by the Thaumcraft 4 mod. It can be grown into Greatwood. Bone Meal cannot be applied to it but you can grow it instantly by using Hoe of Growth or greatly speed growth time by placing Lamp of Growth nearby. Only 1 sapling is required to grow a tree.

Greatwood is a big tree that spawns in most of forest-based and plains-based biomes in Overworld, but it is most common in Magical Forest biome. It is about 32 blocks in height and 20 blocks in width and length. It has a trunk of 2x2 blocks.

Each tree consists roughly of 500 Greatwood Logs and enough Greatwood Leaves to drop 16 Greatwood Saplings. Sapling drop rate can be increased if Fortune III was used to break the Greatwood Leaves.

Thaumonomicon Entry[edit]


"Greatwood Trees:
These large and majestic trees can be found dotted all over the countryside. Their wood is able to absorb impressive amounts of magic making it a popular component in the crafting of magical devices.

Silverwood Trees:
These rare and magical trees are a wondrous sight. Their leaves shimmer with magical energy and their pale, soft wood is valued for its purifying properties. The trees magical nature is such that aura nodes often form within their hearts - this feature alone makes a silverwood sapling a prize beyond measure.

The strange, glowing flowers only grow in the shadow of Silverwood Trees. They can be harvested and pulped to produce quicksilver.

Found only in the hottest of climes, these plants burn with elemental fire. They can be harvested and ground to produce a fine powder akin to Blaze powder.

Mana Pod:
This strange, pod like plant is only found growing on trees in magical forests. They grow very slowly and when harvested usually only yield one or two beans. These beans, known as Mana Beans, contain concentrated amounts of essentia. They can also be consumed, though the results are often a bit unpredictable. They can be replanted, but cultivation is difficult and time-consuming. Wild mana pods usually only produce primal aspects, though it is said that planting beans adjacent to existing ones sometimes result in beans with compound aspects."
