How to Get Wood

Chop Trees

Beech Tree Young Beech Tree

Wood is obtained from all kinds of trees in Valheim. Beech trees are the easiest ones to chop since they only require a Stone Axe. This makes beech trees the best source of wood in the game — especially early on.

Young Beech Trees are also present in almost every biome in Valheim and can be farmed for wood as well by simply punching them!

Hunt Greylings and Greydwarves

Greyling Greydwarves & Shaman

Wood can also be obtained from killing Greylings, Greydwarves, Greydwarf Shamans, and Greydwarf Brutes. These monsters prefer to roam the forests of the Meadows and Black Forest biomes early on at night, but can still be seen during the day.
