Main / Terrain / Tree

Description

There are tiles in Wurm where a tree or bush grows. Trees can be cut down and chopped up by activating and using a hatchet. This uses the woodcutting skill. You can also use a myriad of other tools for cutting a tree down, but this will be far less effective. The amount of wood produced depends on the age of the tree and the type of tree. See woodcutting for more information on cutting down trees.

Trees can be categorised in 3 types: lumber trees, fruit trees, and bushes. Fruit trees will produce extremely little wood when cut down, and bushes produce no wood, but these two types can be harvested while they are in their harvest season.

Sprouts can be picked from a tree by using a sickle on it. This uses the forestry skill. These sprouts can then be used to plant new trees. Planting a sprout uses the gardening skill. Removing the sprout from a tree reduces the age of the tree slightly.

Very old trees with sprouts and overaged trees can be pruned with a sickle. This reduces their age and delays the 'old and shriveled' stage.

Tree Types

Lumber Trees

Lumber trees give large amounts of wood when chopped at an old age. Most types of wood also have special properties.

  • Birch - Less wood is needed to reach the maximum burn-time of a fire.
  • Cedar - Items made out of cedar decay slower. Arrows made out of cedar are easier to improve. Cedar charcoal piles will burn longer but produce less charcoal.
  • Maple - Maple trees is a lumber tree that can be harvested for maple sap with a bucket (while it's in season). Arrows made out of maple take less damage.
  • Oak - Rare tree. Oak tools take less damage when used. An oak will kill other trees within 2 tiles. Oak charcoal piles will burn longer and produce more charcoal
  • Pine - Pinewood has no special properties, but pines are abundant and grow fast.
  • Willow - Rare tree. Willow wood is good for bows and fishing rods. A willow will kill other trees within 2 tiles.

Added in v1.1. Sprouts can be found while foraging.

Fruit Trees

Fruit trees have fruits which can be harvested during harvest season, but they give very little wood. They are also notorious for spreading incredibly fast and removing potential growth locations for other trees with more utility.

Bushes

Bushes don't give any wood at all when chopped down. Like fruit trees, they can also be harvested.

Tree/Bush Ages

  • Young
    • Not harvestable
    • Lumber Trees yield one 1.60, 3.20 or 4.80 kg log; Fruit trees and very young lumber trees yield a wood scrap
  • Mature
    • Harvestable
    • Lumber trees yield one 11.20 kg log; Fruit trees yield one 2.00 kg or 2.40 kg log
    • Will produce sprouts
  • Old
    • Harvestable
    • Lumber Trees yield a fallen tree, weights: 106,67kg, 120kg (with sprout), 133.33kg or 146.67kg (with sprout); Fruit trees yield one 3.20 kg, 3.60 kg (with a sprout) or 4.00 kg log
    • Will produce sprouts
  • Very Old
    • Harvestable
    • Lumber Trees yield a fallen tree with a weight of 160.00 kg if they do not have a sprout, 173,33 kg if they do; Fruit trees yield one 4.80 kg or 5.20 kg (with a sprout) log
    • Can be pruned back to the beginning stages of very old when they are close to growing to the next level of overaged
    • Will produce sprouts
  • Overaged
    • Not harvestable
    • Lumber Trees yield a fallen tree with a weight of 186.67 kg; Fruit trees yield one 5.60 kg log
    • Can be pruned back to the beginning stages of very old (so that they can be harvested if in season)
  • Shriveled (Old and Shriveled on Examine)
    • Not harvestable
    • Lumber Trees yield one 4.80 kg log; Fruit trees yield a woodscrap
    • Will replant itself after it dies.

Notes

  • Trees generally take several real weeks to grow to "old", "very old" or "overaged", which are the prime types for cutting. Oak is known to take several months to reach old age.
  • Trees infected by mycelium do not produce fruit.
  • Sprout quality does not determine tree quality.
  • Trees spread when they advance to the next growth stage. (Note: The tile in which they spread is random and must support tree growth. "Grass or flower time above water)
  • Order in tree height (at very old stage) is as follows: Cedar, Pine, Maple, Chestnut, Oak, Linden, Birch, Fir, Walnut, Willow, Olive, Apple, Cherry, Lemon
