Where to Find Wood in Lightyear Frontier

In Lightyear Frontier, Wood comes in a few different types: regular, soft, and hard. Each wood type is used in a variety of recipes. Regular wood is used in most of the basic recipes like a Workshop Shed, a Gardening Plot, Storage Boxes, and a Small Cabin. Regular Wood comes from small Green and Yellow Trees, as well as some bushes.

Hardwood is needed for more substantial item recipes such as a Log Rack, Hardwood Fence, and a Color Mixer. Hardwood is gained from harvesting Large Green and Yellow Trees, as well as large fallen trees.

Softwood is rarer than regular Wood and Hardwood and is used in items like Weather Station, Goal Post, and Lattice Fence. Softwood comes from Pine Trees. These can be small or large pine trees so harvesting either type will gain you lots of Soft Wood.

Wood can be pretty heavy, so watch out if you are traveling far from home to harvest materials. If you become over-encumbered, it makes moving about a lot harder. When you are over-encumbered, you cannot sprint or boost jump, and the journey back to camp takes much longer.

When you harvest trees in Lightyear Frontier, you gain not only the Wood you need but also occasionally gain a Tree Sprout. Use your Sprout Cannon to plant these trees nearer your camp so you don’t have to go searching for Pines or Large Trees.
