Several different kinds of leaves are found on trees. There are five kinds of leaves: Leaves, Jungle Leaves, Pine Needles, Acacia Leaves and Aspen Leaves.

When mined, they have a 5% chance to drop a certain type of sapling. They can be mined by a sword or with the hand.

They also decay (with the same chance to drop a sapling) if no tree, jungle tree, pine tree, acacia tree or aspen tree block is less than 4 blocks away. It does not matter which kind of tree block, however. Leaf blocks which have been placed by a player will not decay.

All kinds of leaves are transparent if the “Fancy trees” option is enabled, else they are opaque.
