Minecraft cherry blossom tree - where to find and how to grow them

The Minecraft Cherry blossom is the prettiest tree in the overworld, and you can even surround yourself with Sakura petals from the Cherry Grove biome.

Where can you find Minecraft cherry blossom trees? If you’ve ever wanted to decorate your house in a gorgeous pink wood set, the Cherry Grove biome has everything you could possibly need for  perfectly pastel base.

These pink-petaled trees have long since been a fan-favorite of Minecraft players, having appeared in many of the most popular Minecraft mods, but the cherry blossom tree was officially added to Minecraft in the 2023 Trails and Tales update. This pretty Minecraft biome is fairly rare though, so here’s what you need to know about Minecraft cherry blossom trees, the Cherry Grove biome, and everything else pink!

Minecraft Cherry Grove biome

The Cherry Grove biome is full of stunning cherry blossom trees, which feature dark wood and beautiful pink leaves. Moreover, these trees leave their petals lying on the ground, making these special areas even prettier. Break down these trees, or let them decompose, and you’ll be sure to collect some saplings, which you can plant anywhere to add a pop of color.

Of course, with the Cherry Blossom tree, you get a full wood set – and undoubtedly one of the best. These soft pink planks completely overhaul the possibilities when considering spectacular Minecraft builds or any simple Minecraft idea. The pink set comes with all the usual pieces, including fence posts, a trapdoor, stairs, and the hanging sign.

Just ‘bee’ very careful when approaching a cherry tree, as you may find a hive hanging from it. Given how delicate they are, handling them with the utmost care is usually best, and we have a Minecraft bees guide on how to do just that.

Find cherry blossom trees in Minecraft

If you’re struggling to find cherry blossom trees in Minecraft, it might simply be because they spawn in a rare biome. There’s no real trick to finding cherry groves easier and it mostly comes down to luck, but you can increase your chances by looking near mountains, as Cherry Groves usually spawn in the lower layer of a mountainous landscape. As such, mining under a cherry grove biome may also reward you with emerald ore.

How to grow cherry blossom trees

As we’ve briefly mentioned above, cherry blossom trees can be grown in the same way as other Minecraft trees. Break the leaves (with anything but shears) or destroy the whole trunk and wait for the leaves to naturally decompose, and – with luck – you should be able to gather a few cherry blossom saplings. Plant these anywhere you like, and wait for them to grow into glorious cherry blossom trees.

How to get pink petals and cherry leaves

We mentioned above that these cherry blossom trees leave Sakura petals lying on the ground. Well, this is actually an item itself! Minecraft pink petals are a natural item that can be placed on grass blocks to make your garden, path, or other green areas look even more beautiful! To get them, just harvest them with sheers. To produce more – in any biome – use bone meal on the placed pink petals as they work the same way as two-high flowers. As such, you can even create a simple pink petal farm, and scatter them on the ground around your Minecraft house.

Just like with other Minecraft trees, you can also harvest the leaf blocks straight from the tree with shears too. These can also add to your pink paradise by placing them around the outside of your base in a naturally scattered fashion, or place them in rows or columns to make bushes.
