Hardwood is a resource. It is obtained by chopping down a Mahogany Tree with any axe, a Large Stump with a Copper Axe or better, or a Large Log with a Steel Axe or better.

Six (6) Large Stumps respawn daily in the Secret Woods, making it possible to obtain 12 Hardwood per day. If you have the Forest Farm map there are eight (8) more stumps at the left side of your farm making for an additional 16 Hardwood that respawns daily. It can also be received as loot by breaking barrels and boxes in the Mines.

Normal trees have a chance of dropping Hardwood with the Lumberjack Profession. Robin may also gift you 25 Hardwood at the Feast of the Winter Star.

A Woodskip Fish Pond may produce 5 Hardwood when the population of the pond reaches 6.
