Answered: Do Trees Regrow In Sons of The Forest?

Yes, trees regrow if you leave out the stumps after chopping them down.

Do Trees Regrow in Sons of the Forest

Yes, trees can regrow best if their stumps are not cut down with the rest of the tree. Similarly, Sons of the Forest includes that same process in its system, allowing players unlimited wood supply.

It is to be noted that once you cut down a tree along with its stump, it will not regrow. With that in mind, you should only remove a tree wholly if you’re entirely sure you won’t need it in the future. Building a base in a 5-10 mile radius holds the perfect reason to chop down trees entirely.

Who wants a tree growing in the middle of their base? No one likes the idea of having a bulge within the walls of their base, taking up unnecessary space.

Key Takeaways

  • Trees can regrow on their own only if the stump is untouched.
  • They take time to grow; eventually, you can cut them down for more wood and sticks.
  • The only logical reason to cut down a whole tree, including its stump, would be if you wanted to build a base around that area.
  • Cutting down trees gives you limited wood, sticks, and leaves.
  • These materials are essential for crafting exceptional bases, weapons, and traps.
  • If you want a tree to regrow, leave its stump intact.

Can You Grow Trees?Stump

Here you can see a stump around fully grown trees.

  1. Trees Cannot Be Planted:
    • Trees in the game can regrow naturally, but players cannot plant them themselves.
  2. Seed Gathering from Berries:
    • You can acquire various plant seeds, including berries, through gameplay activities.
    • Gardening is an option, but planting trees is not available.
  3. Natural Regrowth:
    • Trees can regrow independently if their stumps are left untouched.
    • Leaving stumps allows trees to return to their original size and shape.
    • While time-consuming, leaving stumps can provide a steady resource supply.
  4. Importance of Trees:
    • Trees are vital for survival in the game, as they provide resources for traps, bases, weapons, and walls.
    • Leaving stumps behind is essential for getting more resources from the same tree.
  5. Resource Sustainability:
    • Assigning Kelvin to chop down regrown trees is a way to maintain a resource supply.
  6. Infinite Resources Uncertain:
    • While resources can be regenerated through natural regrowth and proper management, it’s unclear if they are truly infinite.

Now that we clearly understand trees and their growth, let’s look at the benefits of the resources it provides.

The Purpose Of Wood

Basic Shelf
Although this is an ordinary shelf, you can craft advance level objects in Sons of the Forest including traps and spiked walls!

Earlier, I talked about regrowth in trees. I also found out that trees provide players with wood and other items. Players can use the material acquired from trees to craft weapons, shelter, a unique base, traps, and armor. Below we’ll enlist all the uses for wood in the game.

There will also be uses for a few cut-up logs along these lines!

Fire WoodUse an Axe to cut down logs vertically down the middle.
FloorUse an Axe to cut down logs in half.
DoorMake a wall from the logs you gained and stack them up together. Vertically cut them down from the middle to place them to make a doorway that you can open/close.
RoofOnce you have a floor and walls built by logs, use the vertically cut logs and place them as planks for the roof.
