With its variety of biomes, Minecraft is a dream come true for explorers, cave divers, and even arborists. Trees cover large swathes of the overworld, from towering Spruce and Jungle trees to more modest Oak and Birch, forming the canopies of the game’s forests. The upcoming 1.19 Wild update will add yet another type of lumber for builders to use: the Mangrove tree. Here’s where you can find Mangrove trees and grow them for your own cabin-building purposes.
Where Are Mangrove Trees in Minecraft?
While none of Minecraft’s latest snapshots actually added Mangrove trees, we already know where they’ll end up spawning. You’ll be able to find these new trees in regular Swamps but if you want a ton of Mangrove wood, your best bet is to find an aptly named Mangrove Swamp biome. These areas will be packed with Mangrove trees for you to chop down and break up to your heart’s content.
Mangrove trees will also bring some other unique blocks with it, namely Mangrove Roots. These decorative blocks spawn around Mangrove trees, assumedly under them or at least to their sides, and can either come clean or muddy, with the latter variant looking less like a bundle of twigs and more a dense block of mud and wood.
What Can You Do With Mangrove Trees in Minecraft?
Like any other tree, Mangrove trees are in Minecraft to be harvested. Mangrove logs themselves sport brown bark that’s just a bit darker than Oak logs. However, Mangrove trees are a striking crimson on the inside. Planks, stripped logs, and any simple wooden products made from Mangrove Logs will include that striking color, giving builders a whole new color and texture to experiment with.
If you want to start your own Mangrove tree farm, you have to do more than simply plant some saplings. Mangrove trees propagate through Mangrove Propagules, which grow at the bottom of Mangrove tree leaves. You can grow new Mangrove Propagules by using bone meal on Mangrove tree leaves as well, or use it to accelerate their growth. After going through four stages of growth, Propagules are ready for harvest and can be broken and planted like any other sapling.
What Will Minecraft 1.19 Change?
Mangroves aren’t the only new block type coming to the game in Patch 1.19. There’s also the addition of the Sculk blocks including Sensors, Shriekers, and Catalysts alongside the more expected mud and mud brick blocks! Just keep in mind that those pesky Sculk blocks need Silk Touch!
Outside of the swamps, you’ll be able to find two more new mobs in Minecraft after its 1.19 Wild update drops. The first, Allays, can be found either in Woodland Mansions or as prisoners in Pillager Outposts. Once freed and given an item, these helpful sprites will follow you around, picking up any more of that item that it sees until it has a full stack. Wardens on the other hand are terrifying new mobs that make their homes in Ancient Cities, a set of generated structures only found in the Deep Dark.
