Lava Wood is the only species 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, its speciality.


It 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 exterior color 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.


It can only be harvested by a player once they successfully pass through the volcano obstacle. The most advisable way to harvest the wood outside the Volcano is to drop it down an angled cliff near the middle of the Volcano, then pass through the obstacle again. From there, the trees will not be in any risk of danger and is safe to load into Vehicles. It is recommended that a player use a Sawmax 01 or higher when milling its branches.
