Something always told me I need this. For most of the time, I've been growing and chopping down trees in the unused area north of the base and east of Spectrum Tower, where I'm exposed to nasties at night that want to eat my brains or blast me to smithereens, plus I have to hang around or regularly check the area to pick up the saplings that the leaves drop as they decay slowly. Seeing as I have so much iron at my disposal, why not flatten an area and cover it in hoppers that can automatically hoover up the saplings as they drop, as well as apples and stray logs? After all, wood is one of the most essential resources in Minecraft, and automatic tree farms involve crazily large redstone contraptions as well as a ton of bonemeal and TNT to operate... this just makes manual lumberjackery so much neater.
