Fences' are used as barriers within Minecraft, their height (to players and mobs) is at 1.5 blocks tall, meaning that neither players nor mobs can jump over them. However, if a player wishes to place a block on top of them, they are placed directly above the fence, as if it is only 1 block tall.

Fences may also be used as a fuel for furnaces.

You can can also jump onto a fence and stack them by jumping up and placing a fence under you.

Before Beta 1.7 Fences could not be stacked without placing them from top to bottom on other blocks and clearing a line of blocks and replacing with fences.

[edit] Crafting

Fences are crafted by placing 6 wooden planks on the bottom two rows of the 3x3 crafting grid.
