Logs are gathered by chopping down Trees with an Axe. Chop the bottom-most log to fell the entire tree. If the axe does not have enough durability to fell the entire tree, as many logs as possible starting from the top of the tree will be chopped and the axe will break.
Player placed logs can also be harvested with a Saw.
Breaking a log with a Hammer will yield 1-3 sticks.
Logs are the primary source of fuel for fire pits. They can either be manually placed inside the fire pit's GUI, or they can simply be tossed (Default: Q) on the top of the fire pit to be consumed. Different logs burn for different lengths ranging from 50 to 112.5 seconds, and at different temperatures.

|White Cedar||Short||Dark Red*|
|White Elm||Long||Dark Red**|
A horizontally placed log will function as a leather rack, allowing the use of a knife to scrape a soaked hide.
Log piles allow for convenient, resource-free storage of logs. They are also required in the creation of charcoal and the lighting of a pit kiln.
To create a log pile, sneak (Default: ⇧ Shift) and right-click while holding a log. The pile can only be placed on top of a solid block, or a full log pile. Right-clicking on a partially full log pile with a log will allow you to place logs in that pile without opening the GUI. Right-clicking on the top or side of a full log pile with a log will place a new log pile. Right-clicking on an existing log pile while not holding a log will open the log pile GUI.
A log pile can store up to 16 logs in 4 stacks of 4. Log piles can have different types of logs.
Note: Log piles in the world use the same graphic regardless of what type of log was used to create them.
