BotW Wood Model.png
Starting Campfires

Wood is an item in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses

Wood can be obtained from cutting down Trees throughout Hyrule. They can be chopped using any bladed Weapon, or knocked down with Remote Bombs. Once a Tree is felled, Link can strike, or blow up, the fallen Tree to create a bundle of Wood.

Wood can be used to light Campfires, along with a flammable Weapon or a piece of Flint and a metallic Weapon.[2] In addition, Wood is used during the "Hylian Homeowner" Side Quest to buy a house[3], as well as during the "From the Ground Up" Side Quest to construct houses for Tarrey Town[4].


  1. "Wood" — Inventory (Breath of the Wild)
  2. "A portable bundle of wood. You can use this to make a campfire if you have something to light it." — Inventory (Breath of the Wild)
  3. "I'm going to need you to bring me 30 wood bundles. Building materials... You know how it is." — Bolson (Breath of the Wild)
  4. "Well... To get started, I suppose we'll need houses for people to live in. We can't invite them without homes. Do you think you can bring me 10 bundles of wood?" — Hudson (Breath of the Wild)
