What would be a simple setup for an automated rubber farm? I know there exists an automated treetap and a rubber farm block, but I've read the latter is deprecated. So, how do I set up such a farm?
Since the pack has MineFactoryReloaded, I would look into using the Planter and Harvester with MFR's rubber trees. The rubber should be interchangeable with IC2 Rubber because of the ore dictionary. You should also be able to use the harvester and planter with the IC2 Rubber trees, but I think that is less productive. On the other hand you'll produce lots of rubber wood which could be used as wood, or tossed into an IC2 Extractor to get more rubber.
