Wood is the weakest of the three building materials in Fortnite, but it is the easiest one to harvest.

Where to Find

Wood can be found in objects such as:

  • Trees
  • Certain walls of houses
  • Certain furniture
  • Boxes
  • Wood pallets
  • Wood barricades

Wood can also be found within Chests, Supply Drops, and Loot Llamas.


Bushes, fences, trees and pallets are effective ways to farm for wood as they yield more.
