When you begin expanding your settlement in Valheim, you will reach a point where you’ll have some issues finding the right trees to chop down. Whether you need an endless supply of regular wood, core wood, or fine wood, there’s an easy solution to your problem. Luckily, you’ve probably already collected many seeds and various cones that will help you grow a forest. Here’s how to plan and grow trees in Valheim.

How to Plant and Grow Trees in Valheim

To plant and grow trees in Valheim, you’ll need a few things first.

  • Cultivator Tool
  • Beech Seeds, Pine Cones, Fir Cones
  • Open land to cultivate

First, you’ll need to craft a cultivator tool to unlock the ability to plant things, such as carrots, radishes, and trees. The gardening tool also allows you to cultivate plots of land, making them suitable for farming and growing things. To make a Cultivator tool, you will need 5 Core Wood, 5 Bronze, and a Forge. That means you’ll need to progress to the bronze age, which requires mining copper and tin and smelting it in a smelter.

Once you have your cultivator tool handy, you can equip it in any slot of your action bar. With the cultivator in hand, right-click to bring up a list of options. You should see the ability to plant Fir saplings, Pine saplings, and Beech saplings, as long as you have Fir Cones, Pine Cones, or Beech Seeds in your inventory. Plant them in a cultivated piece of land, evenly spaced apart, far enough for them to grow healthy. A good rule of thumb is to space out your trees so you can fit a 2×2 wood floor between them. If you try to grow them too close together, you’ll see a message saying they need more space.

Now, all you need to do is wait for them to grow. Planting and growing trees in Valheim is a reasonably straightforward process. It also saves you a lot of time, so you don’t need to venture out too far to collect wood.
