DF2014 Talk:Wood cutter
 Mod Tree Colors Tip
i have an above ground fortress that requires lots of wood, and having made a deal with the elves, i want to only cut down the biggest trees. i found it very helpful to mod the DISPLAY_COLOR of willow, candlenut, and mango trees (the biggest trees in my biome), so i can easily pick them out.

 Danger to Woodcutter - or not?
"... possible even killing the woodcutter himself,"
"Any creature near a falling tree, other than the feller, is in danger."
Which is it? 2001:8B0:CA51:919:3DEC:6AA5:85B7:4DA5 14:14, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
- Neither; felled trees fall completely harmlessly (verified v0.42.04). However, items previously resting upon felled trees (including logs from previously felled trees) fall with standard Dwarf Fortress lethality when their supporting tree is felled. I will clarify the page.--Loci (talk) 21:49, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
 Woodcutting with great axes, halberds?
- Good question. I modded great axes and halberds to be usable by dwarves, and both were capable of felling trees. Presumably you could get a human or goblin citizen woodcutter to use either weapon, though since the game tends to equip lower-value axes for woodcutting you'd probably have to forbid all the cheaper battle axes first.--Loci (talk) 16:49, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
