Disney Dreamlight Valley allows players to craft a plethora of items using different resources. One of these resources that are used abundantly is hardwood. It is also required for the completion of certain quests. Hence, getting hardwood is an essential part of your progression in-game.
This guide will cover the best method to get hardwood in Disney Dreamlight Valley.
Hardwood is commonly found on the ground under a tree. Your best bet is to look under the trees around houses, lakes, and any other landmarks. It appears as wooden sticks with a reddish tint to them. Once you find one, simply walk towards it so you can pick it up.
It’s important to look closely and differentiate between hardwood and softwood as they are very similar in appearance. Although you might find both of them in the same forest in an area, you can search for hardwood next to distinct types of trees.

It must differentiate between hardwood and softwood as they are very similar in appearance. The key factor is to remember the unique reddish tint of hardwood.
Where to find Hardwood in Disney Dreamlight Valley
Hardwood can be found in a couple of regions lying under trees. There is no need to venture into any other areas for hardwood instead of the following:
- Forgotten Lands
- Glade of Trust
- Forest of Valor
- Sunlit Plateau
- Frosted Heights
However, we recommend you only visit Forest of Valor and Glade of Trust to get hardwood as both of these areas are comparatively cheaper to visit. Forest of Valor and Glade of Trust cost 3,000 and 5,000 Dreamlight coins to visit respectively. Also, both areas have dense tree populations, so you will have a much easier time finding hardwood.
Furthermore, we recommend collecting as much hardwood as you can when you visit these areas. This is so you don’t have to come back frequently if you run out of it. You will find a lot of softwood too while looking for hardwood. Just make sure that you not looking for Hardwood in open spaces rather than under the trees and you will be fine.
If you find that venturing out in search of hardwood and spending a lot of time collecting it doesn’t suffice, then you might want to switch to a different method of farming.
The best way to farm Hardwood
The best way to farm hardwood is to remove the trees in these biomes from their place and place Plaza trees in each biome as a source of hardwood.
For this method, it’s recommended to either go to the Forest of Valor or the Glade of Trust area, as these areas have the highest chances of spawning hardwood. Once you’re there, you need to select every single tree in the area and remove it from its place. This can be done via the ‘Furniture’ menu in your inventory.
From the ‘Furniture’ menu, you can navigate to any tree in the area, select it, and then remove it to store it in your inventory. The next step is to get your hands on some Plaza trees and place 10 of them in each biome, leaving a three-space distance in between each of the trees.
If you have taken enough care to remove every single tree in the biome, then the Plaza trees will drop a piece of hardwood next to them at every 15-minute interval. This increases your chances to get hardwood in a minimal amount of time, as it takes a lot longer for hardwood to spawn normally.
When you’re done with farming and want to place back the trees you removed, then you can do so via the Furniture menu as well.
