Wood is the first resource players can obtain. It is the most basic and common material in starve.io and is used in nearly every early recipe. Wood can be gathered by hitting trees, which can be found everywhere, especially at the edge of the map. Using pickaxes instead of the bare hands will collect more wood per hit, with higher tiers gathering more resources each time.
Trees appear in different shapes and sizes, depending on which biome the player is in.
- Trees in the forest:
- Trees in the winter:
- Trees on islands
