You can easily chop down trees by crafting a Pickaxe, which requires 1 String, 4 Twigs, and 1 Stone. String can be crafted under the Crafting section in the pause menu, while Twigs and Stones are easily found on the ground in any area.

If you want to farm these trees, you can chop them down, log out, and then log back in. Every time you log back into Enshrouded, everything respawns, allowing you to farm for resources and materials.

What is Resin Used for in Enshrouded?

There are tons of uses for Resin in Enshrouded. The most commonly use for Resin is to craft Illumination items such as Wall Torch, Standing Torch, Skull Candles, and more. These are essential to light up houses and other buildings in your home base.

Additionally, players will find themselves using Resin towards Armor sets such as the Rising Fighter Armour Set, creating magical Staffs, and even the Fireball spell.

These are just examples, and there are plenty more that require Resin as a main ingredient.

You’ll never know when you’ll need Resin, so it’s best to have ample inventory for when the time comes.
