Wood is the basic resource in Boom Beach. Along with Gold, it is necessary to construct and upgrade the buildings in the game, and it is absolutely essential to have a constant supply coming in. Other than buildings and upgrades, you shouldn't be spending Wood on much else, but the cost of upgrading certain buildings like your Headquarters is very significant.

Generating Wood

Wood is produced in the Sawmill. You are given one of these when you start the game and can only have one in your base. You need to upgrade it to increase your Wood output, with the details below showing how much you can expect from each level:

How to generate more Wood

There are a few other techniques for gaining extra Wood. For starters, you can chop down the Mangrove trees that surround your base for a fee in Gold. This essentially works out like trading Gold for Wood, though the older trees you cannot chop down until later levels. This is to stop your base from expanding too quickly. Once you have chopped down all of your possible trees, the only way to get more Wood is from the Sawmill and other bases.

You also receive Wood when you successfully attack enemy bases. This is similar to chopping down trees as you have to pay a Coin cost to attack, and obviously risk losing units too. You do receive a very substantial amount of Wood if your attack is successful, however.

Finally, you will encounter resource bases every so often while exploring on the map screen. If you defeat these bases, then as well as the Gold that you receive for liberating villages, you will also have a boat with Wood on from the resource base.

Liberate resource bases to get other resources than Gold coming into your base by boat
