Between what heights will "Jungle" biome trees grow to? I'm curious because sometimes I get really short awkward trees, and at times I get huge trees with multiple layers of leaves. Is there a minimum height or maximum height?

Maybe this question/answer will help?… – Hex Mar 1 '12 at 21:10
Unfortunately, no. I know how to grow jungle trees, but the heights in which they grow are often random.... – waifu Mar 2 '12 at 17:09

According to Wikipedia there is no real limit found in the code with regard to the height cap. There is however a limit found in the number of logs of which a tree may exist of: 55.

Wikipedia, or the Minecraft Wiki? – tombull89 Mar 5 '12 at 12:10
so the max height of a jungle tree (2x2 saplings) is 13? – waifu Mar 6 '12 at 19:11

I've grown ones that are 31 in height, from ground to the top of their leaves. I doubt that's a maximum though.

As for a minimum, you could get at that by trying to grow trees under platforms of different heights.
