Two well grown birches, two young apple trees and a berry bush on a plain terrain in the Forest World.

Trees are, as in real life, large structures which yield wood and other resources when chopped down. Trees spawn randomly atop earth blocks on the surface. When this happens, the tree will be only one or two blocks tall. If left alone, however, they will grow taller over time. Taller trees produce more resources; thus, it is a good idea to let trees grow to great heights before cutting them down, if the need for resources is not immediate.

Types[ | ]

There are several types of tree. Apple trees, pine, thuja, palm and birch are amongst the most common types found in the first worlds of the campaign. The type of tree determines its appearance, and what resources (in addition to wood) are dropped when it is cut down by a dwarf. Trees and bushes spawn with higher frequency near plants of the same type.

The tables below shows the type of resources obtained when cutting each tree down, the max height on blocks they can reach, and the worlds they can be found on. For the sake of completeness, the second table includes bushes and miscellaneous plants that behave very similar to the actual trees. Dropped resources are ordered from the most numerous on top to the less probable on bottom.

Logging[ | ]

Logging

When chopping down trees, dwarves use the logger skill, along with whatever tool is equipped in their axe slot.

The section of the tree which was designated for cutting does not matter; if one piece of the tree is cut down, the entire tree will be.

You can force the vegetation to respawn by using the spell magic forest.
