Axe Usestrees, and acquire fruit tree saplings. Stone axes are much weaker then metal axes, which are much more useful as the time it takes to cut down a tree is greatly reduced. When cutting a tree with an axe that does not have the required durability, only part of the tree is cut down (top of tree is broken first). Also, when using a stone axe to cut trees you might get fewer logs than if you used a metal axe. Stone axes only have a 90% chance of yielding a log from a tree block.
Stone axes in order of increasing durability: Sedimentary, Metamorphic, Igneous Intrusive, Igneous Extrusive.

Axe heads can also be crafted by using ingots on an anvil with a hammer. This is the only option for higher tier metals that cannot be cast. The durability depends both on the metal used and the skill of the smith forging the tool.
