Forestry Mod for Minecraft is a modification for the game Minecraft designed with compatibility to BuildCraft and IndustrialCraft in mind. The goal of this mod is to automate tree farming as much as possible without becoming entirely overpowered. Full automation can currently only be achieved if the mod is used in conjunction with BuildCraft.
Farms and Plantations
Tree farming is the core mechanic of Forestry. With Forestry, you are able to completely automate the harvest of logs and saplings. By using Humus and saplings, as well as optionally catalyst to speed the process up, you need never again swing an axe. Simply place an Arboretum in a well lit area and watch as it automatically clears out the required area for your farm and lays down Humus and saplings. Add a Logger to your farm and it will automatically cut down your trees, as well as collect saplings and apples. Finally, you can use a Forester to kick your farm into overdrive by using Catalyst to instantly grow your trees.
Forestry makes wheat farming simple. The Farm clears an area for your wheat farm then places farmland, water, and plants seeds. Add a Combine to your farm and it will automatically harvest mature wheat and collect the seeds. Additionally you can add a Forester to speed up the process of growing wheat by using Catalyst.

Forestry Mod Installation
- Check that your Minecraft is at the correct version required. If you already have BuildCraft or IndustrialCraft 2 (along with Minecraft Forge) installed, you can skip directly to Step 4.
- Find your minecraft.jar. On windows it will be located in %appdata%/.minecraft/bin. Backup your current minecraft.jar.
- Delete the folder META-INF in your minecraft.jar. Not deleting it will cause the game to fail to start up, even if you installed everything else correctly.
- Open your minecraft.jar with WinRAR or 7zip. Drag and drop the Forestry Mod of the zip file for Minecraft Forge into the .jar. DO NOT INSTALL MODLOADER OR MODLOADERMP!
- Add forestry-client-A-*.jar to your mod folder in %appdata%/.minecraft/mods. This is also where the files for BuildCraft and IndustrialCraft 2 should be located.
- (Optional) Test your installation by launching the minecraft client. Press the button “Login” in the launcher and wait for the main menu to appear. Now check the file ForgeModLoader-0.log in %appdata%/.minecraft/. You should find a line that says “Mod class forestry.mod_Forestry loaded successfully” from mod_Forestry.class” or something similar. If the file does not mention Forestry, something is amiss.
