This is a guide to chop trees to get wood, chop them down, and pull them up in the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH). Learn how to use an Axe to get wood, hardwood and softwood.
List of Contents
In order to start getting items like wood, hardwood, and softwood, you'll need to start off with a Flimsy Axe.
The Flimsy Axe and Stone Axe are not able to chop down trees. In some way, this makes them useful, as a real Axe will always cut down a tree on the third strike, so you're better off using a Flimsy or Stone Axe when you don't want to cut down a tree.
Once you've repaid the initial loan of 5,000 Miles to Tom Nook, you'll be able to purchase the Pretty Good Tools Recipes for 3,000 Miles from Nook Stop on the “Redeem Your Miles” screen. This will give you access to a variety of non-Flimsy tools, including the Axe.
Equip the Axe, get close to the tree and let 'er rip! After three strikes, the tree will come crashing down.
After cutting down a tree, a stump will remain in its place. If you want to get rid of the stump to plant something else in its place, you can pull it up with any kind of Shovel, including the Flimsy Shovel.
To pull up a Tree, the first thing you'll need is a Shovel. Any Shovel, including the Flimsy Shovel, will work fine. You can craft a Shovel at a DIY Workbench, after receiving it from Blathers.
Stumps can be pulled up at any time, but to pull up a whole tree, you'll need a little power boost. By eating a fruit, you can gain a point of stamina, up to a maximum of 10 points. For each point of stamina, you'll be able to lift one full tree out by its roots using a Shovel.
The Stamina meter will be visible in the top right of the screen after eating a Fruit.
There are some bugs which will only appear on stumps. It's a good idea to leave a few stumps around to try to hunt for these rare bugs.
After you've cut down a tree, you can use the stump as a chair. If you cut down a tree in a spot with a view, you can take a nice picture with your Villager!
If you've pulled up a full tree without cutting it down, you'll be able to replant it in a new spot. After you've pulled up a tree, it will appear as an item in your bag, and you'll be able to plant it again at any time and place with it already fully grown, without needing to start again from a sapling.

This is a good tactic if you're looking for softwood or need more wood for that. But still, it should eat into a lot of time, right?
