Birch trees are a plant that naturally occur in boreal forests and tundras. Birch trees can also be grown by the player in any biome, but can't be sown in hydroponics. A mature birch tree yields 30 wood.


Birch trees have a base growing time of 20 days, need a minimum soil fertility of 30%, and have a fertility sensitivity rating of 50%. The following table details how long it takes for birch trees to grow in each growable ground type, factoring in the plant resting time and being in ideal growing conditions:

Ground Type Gravel Soil Rich Soil Hydroponics
Fertility (%) 70 100 140 230
Grow Time (days) 40.64 34.55 28.79 -
Base Yield/day[1] 0.74 0.87 1.04 -
  1. Per plant

Birch trees are functionally identical to pine trees. Therefore, birch trees are tied with pine trees as being the second worst tree to farm for wood in the game; the worst being cecropia trees.

Food Production

Birch trees don't yield any human-edible products.


The birch tree's raw product is wood, which has a market value of 1.4 silver. The refined product with the largest profit margin is a grand sculpture, having a 51.25%[1] profit margin. The following table details silver per day, per plant. It only factors in the 50% selling markdown; the market value of the products; and the yield per day:

Ground Type Gravel Soil Rich Soil Hydroponics
Raw 0.52 0.61 0.73 -
Refined 0.78 0.92 1.1 -
