Animal Crossing New Horizons has many types of collectibles that can be used. Here’s how you can cut down trees and collect hardwood and softwood.
In Animal Crossing New Horizons there are a lot of new opportunities and customization tools offered to you to make your town much beautiful than before. In the previous versions of Animal Crossing arranging your oaks and Douglas Firs (Cedars) requires special attention and patience while your seed became a sapling and then took root to become a fruit-bearing tree.
In Animal Crossing New Horizons, things are much quicker than before now you can simply uproot a tree by using your shovel, and then you can relocate it to any location of your desire. You have no need to chop them down with an axe, you can just relocate them with your shovel even if it’s one space to the right.
In this guide, we will tell you how to move trees and how to arrange them, and we will also tell you how to harvest wood and how to grow a huge variety of juice fruit trees on your island.
If you want to move a tree that you would like to be on another location, just eat the fruit to get strength and then use a shovel to move the tree.
if you want to move a Sapling which is still growing you can easily move it by digging it up by using your shovel, you don’t need to worry you will not destroy it just like in the previous versions of animal crossing.
In the previous versions of Animal Crossing, you can’t move a tree from its place you can only chop it down through axe and then plant another tree in the location of your desire. In Animal Crossing New Horizons you can move the tree or bamboo very easily, just eat a piece of fruit to get superhuman strength and then use your shovel to scoop them up. Once you dig up a tree it will be shrunk and go directly to your pocket/inventory, and then all you have to do is find a new location to deposit it.
By eating a piece of fruit a counter will appear on the top left corner of the screen, it will increase maximum up to 10. The fruit counter shows that how many trees or rocks you can destroy before you loose your superhuman strength, you can simply dig up and replant the trees or go to the toilet in order to drain the superhuman strength.
You can extract wood by chopping the trees with an axe. You can get three types of woods from the trees in Animal Crossing: New Horizons i.e Hardwood, Softwood, and regular wood. we have mentioned below all the details about them.
How to get Wood in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
You will get the wood from trees just like in real life, there is an unending supply produced in Animal Crossing New Horizons of all three types of wood. Use the axe and hit the tree to get the wood from it.
The tree will only be able to withstand two proper hits with an axe the third strike will chop down the tree, so be careful if you don’t cut down a prized fruit tree accidentally.
It will better if you use a Stone or Flimsy axe to gather wood. You will be able to get three lots of woods from each tree and other axes are not powerful enough to cut down the tree.
The bad thing is that the flimsy or stone axe is strong enough but they have certain health they will disintegrate through use. So you will have to make many flimsy axes if you want to harvest wood from all the trees of your island, and you can also upgrade the flimsy axe so that you can use it for a longer duration.
The wood you will get in the game will be used to craft a number of items, vitals tools, exotic furniture, and many more.
How to get Hardwood in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
You will obtain hardwood in the same way as a normal wood in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Hardwood is darker in color than a normal type.
How to get Softwood in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
Softwood will also be obtained by chopping the trees just like the other type of woods in the game.
