A Lumberjack's Hut produces Wood wood from undeveloped tiles within a small radius of influence around itself. The building requires these tiles to be wooded, but the Lumberjack's Hut will seed its own trees if there are none. It is the most common production building in the game and is present in all of Anno 1800's regions.

When lumberjack's huts are placed in a lush forest they can start operating immediately. Otherwise trees have to be planted first, which can take from 15 seconds up to 5 minutes based on how many trees are in the influence radius. The exact waiting time is shown when placing the building, after which time the hut will begin to produce wood while planting new trees at the same time - thus never running out of trees (if no new buildings or roads are built in the influence radius).

Productivity

Regardless of region, it takes the Lumberjack's Hut 15 seconds to produce 1 ton of wood, so its the production rate is 4 tons of wood per minute. Productivity can always be changed using items, while those in Old World and New World can have their working conditions altered to improve production. Electricity has no effect on lumberjack's huts.

Lumberjack's huts don't need their whole influence radius to be free of other buildings and roads, only 204 tiles (out of 240 in the whole radius) have to be free to achieve 100% productivity. If less number of tiles is free, the productivity drops according to the amount of occupied space.

Wood usage and production chains

Wood is the first resource a player can obtain. In the beginning it is used only to produce timber - the first and most important construction material. Later it is also used in many production chains, either as wood or after being processed into wood veneers.

Wood can be used during expeditions, it grants 10 bonus points to crafting skill per 50 tons. It can also be sold for 2 coins, or purchased for 6 coins per ton (by passive trading).

All production chains which utilize wood are listed below.
