This is awesome, got two saplings from mommy tree and one grew into a giant tree, so I have plenty of wood.
Second day and already have a tree farm working and a full log house.
The roots are digging deep and soon I'll have some shears and I can start on aesthetics.
Is using half blocks to protect your heart against the rules?
It has to be in contact with the rest of your tree, so as long as one side of it is touching another log, you're fine.
Of course, you could adjust it however you feel like is good.
