(Updated August the 3rd, 2013)

Prelude
Some time ago I downloaded the Minecraft Coder Pack and monkeyed with the Minecraft code, mostly altering the tree generator to make the trees much bigger. Eventually I decided to make public my little project, now known as the "BigTrees" mod. The purpose of the mod is to create immersive forest environments, inspired by forests I have been to, yet modeled to suit the Minecraft universe. I gladly accept any opinions you might have, and hope to continue updating the mod with new features, though very slowly.

Features
  • Adds several large tree types using vanilla blocktypes.
  • Sections of the forest biome are populated by either wide trees or tall narrow trees.
    - Wide trees: Great Oak, Thick Pine, and Block Oak.
    - Tall trees: Post Oak
  • Parts of the forest biome still predominately feature the normal small trees.
  • The small swamp trees are accompanied by big trees.
    - Great Swamp Oak, Cyprus, and Hat Trees.
  • There are big dead trees in the desert.
  • There are large pines in some regions of the taiga.
  • Vanilla birch and pine trees are taller.
  • Huge jungle trees have more, longer branches.
  • Roots! They sometimes find their way into near-surface caves or off of cliff edges.
  • There's a configuration file now. (kbigtrees.txt) Posted Image
  • Planting saplings and placing wood blocks controls the type of tree that grows. (See Tree Growth Guide below.)

Slow Computer?
The game might lag a lot while generating these huge trees on some computers. When this happens on my not-top-of-the-line laptop, I pause the game (which significantly increases generation speed) and let it generate for a bit, then unpause. The lag should go away once all your chunks are generated. Having shorter render distances helps. (I use normal.) (Also, lower screen resolution, not-smooth-lighting, and fast graphics help.) (But most of you probably have a way better laptop than my 2GHz dual-core buddy.)

This mod looks awesome. I'm definatly gonna install

Any way that these big trees only have a certain chance of growing? Like 1/20 biomes will have big trees or something?

Something like that is planned for the next release. More like a random biome-like mapping that decides the chance a tree will be a big tree or a small tree. I want to wait for MC 1.0 before I do any more coding though. And I just don't have time to monkey much right now. Though I did climb a tree yesterday. XD

Ooo, that looks nice: Twilight Forest
I'll have to try it out, and perhaps take some inspiration while keeping the purpose of my mod separate. :)

It may take some time to work for everybody, since I just uploaded it this morning. (And it might phase in and out of service. I don't know how reliable FileDropper is, but so far it's been great.) Try it again now. Or later.
