Branches are one of the basic materials used in every primitive tool, from making a Wattle fence, to starting a Campfire, and many other uses. Branches can also be used as fuel in campfires and other items that require fuel.


A Branch can be obtained by right-clicking on a tree and choosing Gather -> a Branch. The quality of the branches is the same quality as the tree from which they are harvested, but is also limited by your Forestry skill.

Branches can also be collected by looking at the ground and using Look for -> Materials, then you can use Gather a Branch to pick up the branches that appear on the ground nearby. In this case the quality of the branch is the same as the quality of the ground on which the branch pile appears, but again, is also limited by your Nature's Lore skill.

Tree branches grow back so you can harvest them again later.

The number of branches a tree can hold, depends on both its type and quality:

Quality Apple tree Mulberry tree Pine tree Spruce tree Birch tree Aspen tree Elm tree Maple tree Oak tree
1 - 32 3 1 10 3 5 10 ?? 10 30
33-65 5 2 13 7 7 8 ?? 16 20
66-99 10 10 20 12 14 40 20 22 28

Minor (sapling) trees do not contain any branches, while Medium trees contain approximately half the number of branches as the full-sized, Mature version.


The crafting process can be started by right-clicking on a branch and choosing Create a Primitive Tool, or by opening the crafting window and choosing the tab with the branch icon.
