When first starting Valheim you’ll only be able to break down certain trees to get wood. Over the course of the game, you’ll get access to stronger tools that let you chop down oak and birch trees, which will drop Fine Wood when broken down. Fine Wood allows you to make a bunch of new items. Here’s how to get Fine Wood in Valheim.

How to Get Fine Wood in Valheim
To get Fine Wood in Valheim you will need to chop down birch and oak trees. These cannot be broken using anything less than a bronze axe, which you can learn more about in our Valheim Bronze guide. Once you have the bronze axe just chop down any oak or birch trees you find. You can find them in the Meadows and the Plains biomes, which shouldn't make them too difficult to find.
Other Ways to Get Fine Wood
There are a few other ways to get Fine Wood in Valheim. The first you’ll have access to is by chopping down beech trees, so that they fall or roll into oak and birch trees. This can be tricky to do but chopping trees on hills can make the process easier.
Shipwrecks can be found along the shores of Meadow areas, these sometimes contain Fine Wood. Just head along the shore until you find one, make sure you’re looking out for pieces of Flint as you go.
Larger enemies like trolls can also be lured towards harder trees. They will break them down as they run through them. Probably the most dangerous method of the bunch, but worth it if you can find a troll minding its own business.
