Wood from trees or other fibrous plants. Useful for building structures and weapons. It is a good fuel for campfires and generators, and can be refined into chemfuel. In a pinch, a piece of wood can be used as a weapon or a leg.

Stuff Adjective

Wood is vital to early game construction and crafting. You are given a number of wood logs at the start of the game and can gather more from any trees, fibercornContent added by the Ideology DLC or timbershroomContent added by the Ideology DLC using the Chop Wood command. Bulk goods traders will also buy and sell wood.

You can plant trees inside growing zones to create a renewable source of wood, though it tends to take over a month of in-game time before trees can be harvested.

Should your colony be visited by an Alphabeaver infestation, watch out! These ravenous genetically-engineered critters will eat every tree on the map if you don't stop them by force!

Using as a weapon

A wood log can be wielded as a melee weapon. It deals more damage per second than a bare fist, which does 5 damage.

Using as a prosthesis

A wood log can also be used as a peg leg to replace an existing or missing leg. A peg leg is requested by adding a bill under the pawn's Health tab.

Using as fuel

Wood is used to refuel torch lamps, campfires, and fueled workbenches. Haulers take care of refueling.
