How to Get Wood Fast

Hitting Trees is the Most Efficient

The most efficient way to get Wood is by hitting trees with an axe.

Be careful or you might chop the tree!

Cannot chop trees Can chop trees
Flimsy Axe Axe
Stone Axe

There are two types of axes, one can chop trees down, and one cannot. The number of wood obtained is not affected by the type of axe used.

Remember that when your are using the Axe, hitting the tree 3 times will chop the tree and it will become a stump.

The type of wood that comes out is random

The three types of wood you can get from hitting trees are Wood, Softwood, and Hardwood. Among them, normal wood seems to come out more frequently.

Wood Can Sometimes Be Found in the Recycle Box

You may sometimes find Wood in the Recycle Box found in the Resident Services.

I been playing AC a lot and I concur... Sometimes I even get like 15 hardwood and softwood for every 4 or 5 wood... Most diy use wood wood and it can be frustrating when you get 5 trees in a row dropping hard/softwood without even one regular wood.
