Wood is one of many different types of resources that you are going to need to build your settlement in Farthest Frontier.
It would not be wrong to say that wood is the most important of all available resources. This is because you require wood for pretty much everything. You cannot build and upgrade structures without wood. You cannot light a fire or cook food to feed your people without wood either.
Hence, wood is a necessary resource that makes many of your daily activities possible. In the following guide, we will look into all the ways through which you can gather wood for your settlement in Farthest Frontier.
Harvest Trees For Wood
The first thing to do is to place your Town Centre near a dense forest with a large number of trees. This gives your villagers easy access to trees so that they can gather wood quickly.
After establishing your Town Centre, select a tree and click on the “Harvest Resource” option. This will order your villagers to start cutting down the trees for wood.
To save time, make sure to select multiple trees or a whole section of the forest for your villagers to collectively harvest. You can also use a shortcut key to harvest wood by pressing “H” on your keyboard.
If your villagers have multiple tasks on their hands, such as gathering wood and stone, you can select the trees and click on the “Prioritize” option so that your villagers cut down the trees first before setting out to get the stone or any other tasks.
However, cutting trees from the forests isn’t an unlimited supply of wood, as you might end up consuming all the wood a forest has to offer. To avoid such a scenario, it is recommended that you grow some trees as well. Do not utilize all the trees of the forest at once; leave some trees behind as it will help the forest grow back faster.
Moreover, you can also grow Oak Trees (one gold each) under Decorations and then harvest them for wood as well. Growing fruit trees for wood is not recommended as it will not only impact your food supply but they are also very slow to grow.
Hire Log Workers To Gather Wood
Harvesting is the primary way of getting wood in Farthest Frontier. There is, however, another way as well.
Once your settlement advances, you will have the option of hiring Log Workers. Their job is to automatically head out and bring wood to your Town Centre. You do not have to select any trees or give any orders. The Log Workers will do the job for you.
Setting up Log Workers is also important because you are likely going to cut down all the nearby trees at the start of the game. Manually setting out to find more trees is going to take time. You can spend that time on your other chores while your Log Workers give you a steady supply of wood.
