This article is about the item. For the profession, see Tapper (profession).

The Tapper is a crafted item that can be placed on a tree to produce Maple Syrup, Oak Resin, Pine Tar, or Sap. It can also be placed on a Mushroom Tree to produce different mushrooms.

The Tapper can be removed from a tree by hitting it once with an axe or pickaxe. This leaves the Tapper intact and able to be reused.

If the Tapper is on a tree when it is struck by lightning, both the Tapper and its contents are destroyed.

Tappers placed on Maple Trees, Oak Trees, Pine Trees, or Mahogany Trees continue to produce during Winter. Since Mushroom Trees turn to stumps in Winter, tappers placed on them produce nothing during that season.

  • 1.4: Fixed issue that could leave trees unchoppable if tapper was removed in unusual fashion. Tappers can now be stacked in a player's inventory and in chests.
  • 1.5: Added the Heavy Tapper. Fixed bug where processing time was affected by the time of day.
