I have created a 2x2 spruce tree farm in Feed The Beast and the trees won't grow at all. I have tried giving the saplings bonemeal and other things I found on the internet, but they still will not grow. Here's a picture of my tree farm:

    Seems like you have mods, try to remove mods and try again, as mods can cause problems.

  • Spruce spawn leaves close to the ground and as crazy as this seems the chest and such could be causing you the issues. As a test try just moving a block of dirt to an area where you have 3-4 spaces around it clear on all sides and give it a go again.

  • @ardaozkal Well it's FTB so there are mods, what did you expect? Commented Jun 2, 2015 at 16:15

This Minecraft Wiki article about trees might be useful. I assume you are trying to grow a Mega Spruce Tree (2 blocks x 2 blocks).

To grow a 2×2 mega spruce tree variant, there must be no block other than air, wood, leaves or saplings either directly next to or diagonally to the northwest spruce sapling.

You have a block that I don't recognize next to the northwest sapling. This is most likely the problem; try removing that block.

If that doesn't work:

  • Do you have enough light? Try using the bonemeal during the daytime.
  • Have you tried applying bonemeal more than once? It's only successful sometimes.

Feel free to leave a comment below this post if you're still having problems.

  • Thanks! :D I did everything you guys suggested and I got it to work ;) Commented Jun 2, 2015 at 13:45
