Trees are probably the most important thing in the game, as far as equipment is concerned. Once a player cuts a tree down, they will be left with wood blocks, which can also be made into sticks. These sticks can create swords, axes, wooden hoes, pick axes and also torches, which can be used to light underground caverns. Tree's are essential for a players survival, as the first house built will most likely be made from wood.
