Maple trees are found in warmer temperate and equatorial regions.
Maple trees are easily recognizable. They have long dark brown barked trunks with heavy dark green leaves. As the seasons change, the color of the leaves on a maple tree will change to reflect the appropriate season. Maple trees are one of the most dynamically colorful trees in the game. Some trunk blocks will have leaves overlaying them, but they are still part of the trunk. Maple trees may have maple seeds on their leaves.
Maple trees will produce maple seeds from its leaves during summer and fall. Maple seeds are harvested by hand and can be collected by passing through their space or when adjacent to the maple seed after it was tapped on. They do not require nor do they benefit from using any particular tools. Agriculturally, maple seeds can be placed in a block of dirt or compost to grow a maple tree for farming additional maple seeds or tree resources.
Wood may be also harvested from the tree's trunk. Doing so will despawn any leaves or trunk blocks on the same layer or above. For harvesting wood, using an axe will produce quicker results and a larger yield than by hand.
Maple trees are (usually deciduous) plants of the genus Acer with approximately 128 species, most of which are known for having bright colors in autumn. One species, the aptly named sugar maple, has its sap harvested for conversion into syrup.
