How am I supposed to get the sticks from up there??


Twiggy Trees are a resource variant of Saplings exclusive to Don't Starve Together. Their life cycle alternates between small, normal, large and old states. A complete cycle lasts between 9.5 and 15.5 days and they grow in all seasons.

When chopped down they yield TwigsLogs, and Twiggy Tree Cones. Every time a Twiggy tree changes stage from old to short, it checks ground for Twigs in a 2 pitchfork tile radius. If there are no Twigs on the ground in that area, the tree will drop one. If there is 1 Twig, it has a 1/2 chance of dropping one. If there are 2 or more twigs in that radius, no more twigs will spawn.

Prototype.png Tips[]

  • Compared to Saplings, the benefits of Twiggy Trees are:
    • They will continue to provide Twigs during Winter.
    • They will not wither during Summer.
    • They will continue spawning Twigs without the player having to interact with them.
    • They can be multiplied.
    • If chopped, they yield a log along with the seed to replant it.
  • Despite the benefits, it is preferable to have a world mostly occupied by saplings. This is because twiggy trees can be propagated easily, allowing you to have the benefits of both twig sources in a single world.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • Twiggy Trees are considered to be part of A New Reign, even though they were introduced before the official start of the beta branch.
  • Twiggy Trees were re-skinned in the Rev. 180814.
  • Twiggy Trees used to be able to get Diseased and would die after a few days as they were not meant to co-exist with Saplings. In A New Reign however, this feature has been removed.
  • Based on their leaves and pine cones, Twiggy Trees are probably based on an araucarian.
