|“||There are no trees like the trees of that land. For in the autumn their leaves fall not, but turn to gold. Not till the spring comes and the new green opens do they fall, and then the boughs are laden with yellow flowers; and the floor of the wood is golden, and golden is the roof, and its pillars are of silver, for the bark of the trees is smooth and grey.||”|
–The Fellowship of the Ring, Lothlórien
The Mallorn (Plural: mellyrn) is a type of tree native to the Lothlórien biome, but can be grown outside of the biome if a sapling is collected. Golden leaves drift from their canopies during the day, and the Mallorn torches on the sides of the silver trunks light up the forest at night with a magical glow.
Some Mellyrn grow much higher, with thicker trunks and enormous overshadowing canopies, and these larger trees usually play host to a treehouse. There are two ways to make larger trees, as of Public Beta 29, see below.
When trying to cut down Mellyrn with a negative Galadhrim alignment, there is a chance you may be attacked by warriors. You will get Mallorn wood cutting down this tree, which is used in many Galadhrim crafting recipes.
A large Mallorn is normally between 25 and 60 blocks high, with the tree top measuring 15 to 25 blocks. But look at the curiosity in the gallery, the smallest large Mallorn found so far. It has a trunk height of only 8 blocks.
Growing a huge Mallorn tree
Since Public Beta 29 a huge variant of Mallorn, the Party Tree, can be grown. Just place a 3x3 square of Mallorn saplings on the ground. You may use some bonemeal on one of the saplings, to cause the whole tree to grow immediately.
Growing a massive Mallorn tree
As of Public Beta 21, massive Mellyrn are able to be grown by placing a 5x5 square of Mallorn saplings on Elvengrass (see image left). Repeatedly using bonemeal on any one of the saplings will cause the whole tree to grow immediately, as usual.
