Beta 1.5 added "official" pine (spruce?) and birch saplings, so this mod will no longer be updated. Feel free to use the sapling graphics for yourself or include them in a texture pack with a credit/link to TooManyItems. Thanks.
VarietalSaplings is a mod that makes the saplings dropped by pine and birch trees grow into the same kind of tree they came from. Also, new sapling images are included and the "default" tree is named hickory, since the leaf shapes are kind of similar and it's an important lumber tree.
