Do Trees Regrow in Sons of the Forest? – Answered

In true survival fashion, the time needed for a tree to grow all the way to even a fraction of the size of the one you cut down will be long, so we recommend that you make camp or build your cabins and other structures in locations close to areas featuring a large array of them.

It’s also important to point out that we did not find any connection between the presence of the remains of the fallen tree, or its stump, which you can see in the image above, and the game’s growing mechanic.
