Maple logs fall under the items’ wood category in Spiritfarer. These are cut from maple trees found in a number of islands or from one of the Turtle Sisters, and are turned into planks using the sawmill.

Once milled, maple planks can be used to build at least 9 buildings and 5 building improvements.

Where To Get Maple Logs

As mentioned above, maple logs are cut from maple trees.

To do this, simply approach any tree and interact with it. This will turn the everlight into a saw that Stella and Daffodil will hold. Next, simply saw left to right repeatedly until the tree falls down.

Any tree that’s been cut down will grow back after a few in-game days.

Here are all the locations where maple trees can be found:

Mosstein Cove

This is a beginner island that’s located at X: 78, Y: 130, just above Albert’s Shipyard.

You can easily reach this island without any ship upgrades on your part.

Maple Tree #1

From the island’s starting point, walk to your right until you get past the small shed to find the tree.

Maple Tree #2

From the first tree, keep walking to your right and jump over the water to find the next maple tree.

Barkensheim Creek

This is another beginner island, located to the left of Mosstein Cove at X: 5, Y: 117. It also requires no prior upgrades to visit.

Maple Tree #1 and #2

The first 2 maple trees are just standing beside each other once you walk past the small shed on the island. There’s a strawberry bush between them.

Maple #3

Greenhalten Bay

This last island is found just below Barkensheim Creek and to the left of Albert’s Shipyard, at X: -8, Y: 75.

Despite being in a rainy spot, this island can still be easily reached without any ship upgrades.

Once on the island, head to your right and go past the wood bridges until you find the two maple trees standing close to each other.

Maple logs can either be used for buildings or turned to planks in the sawmill.

Turtle Sisters

Once you’ve unlocked any of the Turtle Sisters, you can also plant maple logs on the plots of land on their back. These will then grow over time as trees you can cut for more logs.

The turtle sisters are located at:

  • Olga (X: 81, Y: 28)
  • Masha (X: -91, Y: 138)
  • Irina (X: 127, Y: -76)

Floating Crates

Specific floating crates also contain maple logs / Spiritfarer

You can also get maple logs from floating crates in the water. Simply jump and interact with the boxes to acquire the materials. Maple logs can be found in the crates in these areas:

  • X: 98, Y: 69
  • X: 50, Y: 100
  • X: 9, Y: 65
  • X: 102, Y: 142
  • X: -27, Y: 116

Note: All of these areas are found around the Hummingberg region.

How To Make Maple Planks

Once you have a good amount of maple logs, head inside your sawmill building and put in your maple logs (you can input up to 50 logs at any time). Then trace the yellow line with your indicator as they pass by. The better you trace, the more planks will come out.

You can get a maximum amount of 4 planks per log, plus 1 sawdust. Once the sawmill is upgraded, you can get as much as 6 planks per log.
