Scaffolding is a block used to help build structures, help players reach higher places, or safely descend without taking fall damage. It is easily breakable without any tools.


When the bottom block of scaffolding is destroyed, all scaffolding blocks above it break, similar to chorus plants. Scaffolding can only be placed six blocks from its support. In Java Edition, if scaffolding is placed seven or more blocks from its support, it will fall.

Scaffolding can be used as fuel when smelting items in a furnace.
