Saplings drop randomly when leaves are destroyed, and can be planted in dirt and grass. Be green.

Right-clicking a sapling with bone meal will cause the tree to grow instantly, although it can fail (which also consumes the bone meal).

Saplings can be of the birch, spruce/pine, Acacia, or oak varieties. Each variety of sapling has different horizontal and vertical space requirements to grow into a tree:

Type
Area
Oak (normal) 1x1 horizontal with 5 free blocks above
Birch 5x5 horizontal with 6 free block above
Pine/Spruce 7x7 horizontal with 9 free blocks above

Saplings also need a light level of at least 9 to grow into a tree. You can achieve the light level you need with torches for underground trees.

Leaves

Leaves are an abundant block found on every tree. Leaf blocks occasionally yield a sapling or an apple when destroyed. Placeable leaf blocks can be obtained by using shears on them.
