Valheim Core Woods: How & Where to Find the Core Wood?



Valheim Core Woods

Valheim Core wood

There have been a lot of types of wood. Simple food, fine wood, core wood, and core wood are the most widely used woods. They can be obtained from different trees of different Valheim biomes.

Fine food can be obtained from Pine trees. Some gamers have also argued that the player can also get them from the oak tree. Both of these trees are abundant in the black forest biome. The black forest biome is the friendliest biome of the game. It has a lot of material and ores which players can use to enhance their skills in Valheim.

How to get core wood from the respective tree?

As mentioned, fine food can be obtained mostly widely from the Pine tree. Pine trees are easy to find in the black forest biome. They are white with white dots on them. Therefore the player can find them with ease and can also easily differentiate them from the normal tree.

Now cutting the Pine tree is not an easy job. It can only be cut by the bronze pickaxe or the higher level of the pickaxe. Therefore the player must need to defeat the first boss to unlock the pickaxe. There have been two different ways to get the core wood from the Pine tree. One involves the use of the high-grade tool and the other involves the use of basic low-grade tools.

Getting core wood by using the basic, low graded tool

As this method involves no high-grade tool, therefore it is a bit laborious as compared to the other. To mine core wood this way, the player needs to find Pine trees, grown in the proximity of each other. Moreover, there must be some normal trees closer to these bunch of Pine trees.

After finding such a location, the player needs to chop down the Pine trees using the normal pickaxe or any kind of axe or hammer. As the normal tree falls, it will damage some of the Pine trees as well. When few trees fall on the bunch of Pine trees, the latter will take enough damage to fall to the ground.

After that, roll the log of Pine trees into each other. In this way, they will collide and take some damage. After a while, they will have taken enough damage to yield the core wood.

This method is quite laborious and some players might get irritated while doing so. Therefore, the player must need a lot of patience to do this job.

Mining core wood using high-grade weapons

If the player has made enough progress in the game, he must have unlocked a variety of high-graded pickaxes and other materials. He also must have a bronze or higher level of the pickaxe. If this is so, the player can get the core wood with ease from the Pine tree.

The player just needs to find the Pine trees in the black forest biome. After that, he just needs to start chopping down the tree. After hitting the tree thrice or four times, the tree will fall. After that, chop it further to turn it into collectible pieces of core wood.

This is a quick and relatively easy way to get the core wood. But it does require a high level of weapon special pickaxe.

Use the Troll to cut the Pine tree

Another interesting method that the player can use is to use the Troll to chop the tree. Trolls are the huge monsters of the black forest biome. The player needs to make Troll follow him. Lead the Troll towards the bunch of Pine trees.

After reaching there, make the Troll attack the player. As the Troll hits the player with its giant batten, dodge its attack and makes it hit the Pine tree. The swing of the Troll is so powerful that the Pine tree can be cut down in a single attack.

Then lead the Troll towards the pile of the Pine tree logs. As it will again go to attack the player, dodge its attack in a way that it will strike the logs of the Pine tree. And thus, the Pine log will turn into small collectible pieces of core wood.

Use of core wood in the game

When the player collects the first-ever piece of core wood, prompts of the new recipes will appear on the top left corner of the screen. Read all these recipes, and craft the weapon or tool which the player needs at that time. It can be used to make different tools, weapons, building materials, armors, and even different objects.


In a nutshell, the player can get the core wood from the Pine tree from the black forest biome. After that, chop the trees by following any of the mentioned techniques. Collect the core woods from there. After collecting the core wood, several new recipes will be unlocked and the player can now craft several new items, materials, weapons, tools, and building materials.
