If you’re wondering how to get it, here’s what you need to do.
Where to Find Hardwood in Disney Dreamlight Valley
Getting Hardwood is pretty simple. you just have to know where to find them. Going into the forest will yield this material, which will be laying on the ground next to trees and stumps.
You can find them specifically in the following zones below:
Forest of Valor
Glade of Trust
The best places to farm in the game’s first few hours are the Forest of Valor and the Glade of Trust, both of which you’ll unlock early on depending on how far you are into the game. You’ll find a bunch of Hardwood on the location based on the picture above as well.
Remember that zones like the Plaza and the Peaceful Meadow don’t contain Hardwood. You’ll eventually unlock access to other areas including the Forgotten Lands, Frosted Heights, and Sunlit Plateau as you go through the main campaign.
Hardwood’s design is identical to that of other types of wood, which might lead to confusion. Thankfully, you can easily tell them apart by their given hue. Reddish-brown describes hardwood, light-brown describes softwood, Pale white describes dry wood, and the darkest brown describes dark wood. See the image up top for reference.
