Dark Oak Sapling Wiki Guide

Let’s explore how to add a dark oak sapling to your inventory.

Platform Version(s) Creative Menu Location

How to get a Dark Oak Sapling in Survival Mode

You can add a dark oak sapling to your inventory in Survival mode by finding dark oak trees growing in a Dark Forest biome and then chopping down the leaves of a dark oak tree. So, let’s get started!

1. Find a Dark Oak Tree

First, you need to find a dark oak tree in your Minecraft world. Dark oak trees are found in the Dark Forest. It is easy to spot a Dark Forest because of the large red and brown mushrooms towering through the dark oak trees.

Dark Oak Sapling - Wiki Guide 6

Within the Dark Forest, you will find dark oak trees. Dark oak trees can only survive in very shady areas which is why you can only find them in these forested areas.

2. Hold an Axe

Although you can use your hand to chop down the leaves of a dark oak tree, we prefer to use a tool such as an axe. These are the axes you can choose from:

Dark Oak Sapling - Wiki Guide 10 How to make a Stone Axe
Dark Oak Sapling - Wiki Guide 11 How to make a Wooden Axe
Dark Oak Sapling - Wiki Guide 12 How to make a Netherite Axe

In this example, we are going to use a stone axe.

TIP: If you are looking for a dark oak sapling, be sure to chop the leaves from the tree. If you chop down the tree trunk, it will give you dark oak wood and not a dark oak sapling.

3. Break the Acacia Leaves

The game control to break the dark oak leaves depends on the version of Minecraft:

  • For Java Edition (PC/Mac), left click and hold on the dark oak leaves.
  • For Pocket Edition (PE), you tap and hold on the dark oak leaves.
  • For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press and hold the RT button on the Xbox controller.
  • For PS3 and PS4, press and hold the R2 button on the PS controller.
  • For Wii U, press and hold the ZR button on the gamepad.
  • For Nintendo Switch, press and hold the ZR button on the controller.
  • For Windows 10 Edition, left click and hold on the dark oak leaves.
  • For Education Edition, left click and hold on the dark oak leaves.

You will need to continue to chop until a dark oak sapling falls from the tree.
