In Fallout 76, much of your time is going to be spent gathering resources and crafting materials to make weapons, armor, food, and other items that will help you survive the wasteland. Wood is one of the ingredients that commonly shows up in various recipes and blueprints, so you’ll want to stock up on wood while you’re out scavenging for resources in Fallout 76.

How to Find Wood 

In order to make valuable items like potable drinking water in Fallout 76, you’ll need to have gathered some wood to use for crafting and cooking. Luckily, finding and harvesting wood in Fallout 76 is quite simple.  

How to Get Wood in Fallout 76

To get wood in Fallout 76, all you have to do is search various logs that you come across in the countryside. Go up to a fallen tree or log, then press Gather to harvest wood scraps from it. Unfortunately, you can’t go up to regular standing trees to harvest wood; you can only gather wood from trees that have already fallen.
