Cecropia trees are a plant that only naturally occurs in tropical rainforests. Cecropia trees can also be grown by the player in any biome, but can't be sown in hydroponics. A mature cecropia tree yields 20 wood.


Cecropia trees have a base growing time of 14 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 cecropia 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 (%) 70 100 140 280
    Real Grow Time (days)[1] 30.41 25.85 21.54 N/A
    Base Yield/day[2] 0.59 0.7 0.84 N/A
    1. Actual days to grow, taking into account rest time.
    2. Per plant, assuming Crop Yield Multiplier of 1.0. Note that Difficulty settings change the Crop Yield Multiplier.
  • Cecropia trees have the lowest yield per day out of any tree in the game, thus making them the worst tree to farm for wood. By contrast, the poplar tree only takes 1.05 more (baseline) days to grow, but yields 50% more wood - but that's still enough to make it the best tree to farm for wood in the game.

    Food Production

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


    The cecropia 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

    Refined 0.74 0.88 1.05 -
