  • 30 Wood
  • 30 Hard Wood
  • 30 Soft Wood

Wood can be gathered from, you guessed it, trees. Grab an axe and start chopping ‘em up. For iron, use an axe or shovel to get the iron you need.

If you happen to run out of resources to gather on your island, just go travel to a different one using the airport; alternatively, you can just wait for a day, and allow the resources to refresh.
