Sons of the Forest is a game of survival. To survive, you’re going to need resources, and trees are one of those crucial resources. Much of your crafting is driven by the planks and sticks that come from these trees. But what happens when you cut them down? If you are wondering do trees regrow in Sons of the Forest, the answer is yes. However, that doesn’t mean it will be easy to renew this resource. Learn how in our guide below.
Trees Can Regrow in Sons of the Forest
Just like in the game’s predecessor The Forest, trees can also regrow in Sons of the Forest. In fact, the two games have a lot in common regarding how that works. In general, you will need to leave some piece of the original tree to have any hope of it growing back. Specifically, a tree can only grow back if you leave the stump in the ground.
The process is long and time-consuming, so if you’re in a hurry expect some frustration. If you don’t care about growing the tree back anyway, you can always keep at the stump with a hatchet until it is completely destroyed. Clearing the stump removes any chance of the tree growing back.
Using Cheats to Regrow Trees in Sons of the Forest
If you aren’t the patient type, there is a cheat you should know about that can get you more wood quickly. Of course, even this option isn’t foolproof. Sons of the Forest offers console commands to help you modify the game, and one of them is related to this issue. Using the console command “regrowmode” gives you a 10 percent boost to the chances of a tree growing back. Hey, it’s better than nothing!
And that’s it for our guide. Managing your resources is a big part of the game. Let us know how it’s going for you in the comment section below!
