Lava Wood is the only variant of wood to grow at the peak of the Volcano. It is arguably the main source of all money making in the game, aside from Phantom Wood and Gold Wood.

An axe specialized for this type of wood is the Fire Axe, which when used to chop other trees apart from this wood, will not be as efficient as it is on Lava Wood, it's specialty.


Lava Wood appears to be a thick and large variant of wood, similar to Elm Wood, Koa Wood, and Walnut Wood. This tree grows with a few brown, Concrete material leaves and sports a Bright Red color exterior with a Really Red interior color. Occasionally, the base of the wood will not fit into the Sawmax 02 or Sawmax 02L, as the tree is mostly made of large branches and logs.

The trees also grow at awkward angles comparable to Spook Wood and Cavecrawler Wood. It cannot be chopped efficiently by a Basic Hatchet, Plain Axe, Steel Axe, and cannot be chopped at all with a Candy Cane Axe.


Lava Wood can be harvested by the player once they successfully pass through the Volcano, which leads to the Volcano's peak, where the wood resides. A method that is mostly used by players is dropping the cut wood down the side of the mountain to get more wood.

Since it is far away from the Main Biome, a vehicle is recommended for an efficient harvest. Also, a single tree might require a truck with a larger cargo or a trailer. A Silver Axe or better is recommended for chopping the tree. The Fire Axe is the best type of axe to chop down the wood and is greatly recommended for use. A Sawmax 01 or better is recommended for milling purposes and will mill the majority of the wood, sometimes with the exception of the base of the tree.
