TreeCapitator Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 (Speed Up The Removal of Trees)

TreeCapitator Mod 1.12/1.11.2 allows players to use axes to cut down all wood touching the wood block you cut down. This significantly speed up the removal of trees in the game. So, the next time you see one of those twenty block high monstrosities, you won’t think of how much work it’ll be, you’ll think of how much wood you’ll get.

TreeCapitator Mod

You can also mess around with the config file to change things like what’s considered a tree, how many leaves the trees need to be considered a tree, what an ax is, and whether or not you need an ax.

So, with mods that add axes into minecraft like IndustrialCraft2, or mods that add in trees like Forestry, you can make sure that you’ll be able to use all of your ax items, and cut down all of your trees.


  • Can break any properly coded log out of the box (see .minecraft/config/TreeCapitator.cfg for details)
  • Sneak while chopping to break logs normally (configurable)
  • Configurable list of tool IDs to determine what an “axe” is
  • Optional item damage based on number of logs broken (defaults to enabled)
  • Optional increasing item damage per block broken (off by default)
  • Smart tree-detection (configurable)
  • Option to destroy leaves (enabled by default)
  • Option to shear leaves (with a shear-type item in hotbar)
  • Option to shear vines (with a shear-type item in hotbar)
  • Disable drops in creative
  • Disable tool requirement
  • Mod version checking (never miss a new feature)

Some notes on how it works:

Tree Detection

  • Trees are determined by looking at the number of leaf blocks that neighbor the top block of a vertical column of logs.
  • If the top block has 3 or more neighboring leaf blocks the code considers that column of logs to be a tree.
  • If the top block does not have 3 neighboring leaf blocks the code will default to normal block breaking.

Item Damage

  • Axes and Shears that have the Unbreaking enchantment will work the way they are supposed to.
  • Damage is applied to the item as each block is broken in the chain.
  • The allowMoreBlocksThanDamage setting should be self-explanitory, but basically it means that if it is set to false and your item breaks in the middle of chopping down a tree, the remaining blocks will not be broken.
  • The code will not search for other axes in your hotbar to apply damage to if your current axe breaks.
  • If you have multiple “shear-type” items in your hotbar, the code will always apply damage to the left-most item.

Destroying Leaves/Vines

  • Shearing vines doesn’t get every vine It seems to favor vines hanging on the Western face of the tree.
  • The destroyLeaves setting MUST be set to true in order for shearLeaves or shearVines to work.
  • The shearLeaves and shearVines settings can be enabled independently of each other.
  • Yes, sometimes a few leaf blocks are left behind after chopping a tree, but they will decay normally.
