There are a lot of different valuable resources in Fallout 76. Resources such as lead will help players create more bullets so they can survive Appalachia. Acid is another resource that can break down other resources so they can be used to create even more items. There are so many resources in Fallout 76 because one of the key aspects of the game is to craft items to help you survive.

One of the most fundamental resources that players will need to gather is wood. Wood is important because it allows players to further build their CAMPS with more structures that will give them more tools to survive in Appalachia. If you want to know how to farm wood in Fallout 76 so you can use it to create items that allow you to craft weapons, our guide here will help you do so.

Where To Find Wood In Fallout 76

Although Fallout 76 takes place after a war completely nuked West Virginia, somehow, all of the nukes missed the wood. There is a lot of wood in Fallout 76 and it is pretty easy to gather. It is pretty difficult to list out every item that can be broken down into wood scraps just due to the sheer amount of wood that is in the game. But here is some items you will be wanting to look out for that can be broken down into wood scraps:

  • Instruments (guitars, accordions, etc.)
  • Melee Weapons (bats, hammers, etc.)
  • Tools (clipboard, brooms, etc.)

If you enter nearly any building in Fallout 76, you will find a couple of items that will give you wood scraps once they are broken down. Of course, there are other wood sources in the game. Woodpiles are an excellent source of wood scraps because they do not need to be broken down which saves you time.

If you are looking for a fast efficient way to farm wood in Fallout 76, finding woodpiles is the way to go. The best locations to farm wood are Prickett's Fort, Helvetia, Sylvie and Sons Logging Camp. These three locations are filled to the brim with wood piles that makes gathering wood so easy. If you visit all three of these locations, you are almost guaranteed to have enough wood for whatever project you need. And the best part is that it is super fast to gather wood as well because there are no special tools needed.

One thing that we do recommend though if you are gathering wood from these locations is that you use the Woodchucker perk. The Woodchucker perk allows players to gather twice as much wood as they normally would. This is a great perk for wood farming. If you use the Woodchucker perk while visiting the three locations mentioned above, players should gather around 1000 wood scraps in less than 10 minutes.
