Light-bulbThe Lumber Yard - Lumber Storage

by Tonya Collins - Mar 26, 2013 Star_s3,561 views

-Gated at level 21
-New free gift crop – Foxtail Fern (6 hour harvest)
-New tree – birch
-1 wrapper
-Build a Lumber Yard to move trees off you homestead, and get 25% more chops & drops from the trees

It's time to get to work on the lumber storage folks have been asking for and build a new Lumber Yard!

We Will have four missions and one wrapper. The lumber yard is four step build with upgrades.
It doesn’t actually store trees, instead When we place the tree into storage the tree itself goes away and we are credited the tree's chops in the Lumber Yard, with a 25% bonus. So storing a Pine Tree will credit you 10 chops. Then, when you need to chop a Pine Tree you simply open the yard, select how many chops you want to use and BAM, tree chopped!
Different trees are opened up to be stored as we do the missions and originally we can store two of each type and can be upgraded to hold 4 of each.

That gives us between 40 and 60 chops for each tree type, including the new Birch Tree that's a mission reward.

We will also see a new type of injured animal , Tadpole Puddles which are healed with 10 Frog Feed until they become one of three Tree Frogs. WE WILL HAVE TO HAVE ALL 3 TYPES.

Any way to go back and replay the 1st mission to get the birch trees? I chopped mine down by accident before I realized I needed to put it in storage first. Don't find them in the market.


use the store button in Tools


cannot figure out how to move trees to lumber yard !!


@Chritina, The serum will also work on saplings to grow them to full size :)


Really a cute idea... Problems... No way to know how to store them unless you were lucky enough to store items and by accident clicked on that tree.. problem two .. tree was partially chopped so did not go in with 20 chops to complete request - No way to remove the tree to place syrum on it to then place back in to chop 20 and complete.. and that is just starters..
