Please take careful note that Fir Wood and Pine Wood each retain special file properties that establish them as different wood types.

Fir Wood is a cream-colored wood with grey exterior found in the Taiga Biome. Mistakenly considered as a variation of "Conifer" (which is a similar scenario regarding Pine Wood), Fir Wood is a specific wood type that has its own properties. The Fir Wood's appearance is also very similar to Palm Wood when planked.
Appearance and Characteristics
Fir Wood has many characteristics that contrast it from the wood it looks like the most- Pine Wood. Fir Trees appear to grow in larger quantity throughout the Taiga and they appear to grow much faster compared to Pine. Fir Trees have a much larger quantity of branches than Pine, however, the leaves on these branches are much more rectangular and smaller compared to the large, cubical leaves of Pine Wood.
The most distinctive characteristic when identifying and comparing both Taiga species is height. Fully-grown Fir Trees often grow to about half the height of fully-grown Pine trees, and they will usually have the same number of trunk log segments or more.
It also can be noted Fir trees fully-grown has its trunk a little less thick than the Pine trees.
Notably, on Fir saplings, the initial growth stage of the tree appears to be more likely to sprout a multitude of leaves in contrast to Pine saplings, which usually have one large leaf.
Fir Wood is found exclusively in the Taiga Area along with Pine Wood. The player who wishes to obtain this wood via vehicles will first need to clear the blockage of boulders at the Taiga entrance. To do so, the player must purchase Dynamite from Bob's Shack and toggle it within the boulders. Once the dynamite has been toggled, the player must run away from the dynamite or risk being blown to smithereens. Then, the dynamite explodes, which will trigger a chain reaction in the blockage that clears the Boulders. On that note, due to the function of The Snow Cave, the player may need to bring a second dynamite upon exit of the Taiga.
It is recommended that the player uses a Silver Axe or greater in order to cut these trees as they are generally strong compared to other species; this applies the same to Pine Wood. While vehicular transportation of the wood is recommended, if possible, the player can attempt to slip the logs through gaps in the boulder placement in the Taiga entrance.
