Should make for an excellent building material.

So... senseless.

I think it looks much better this way.

My mere presence struck terror into their tree-hearts!

It's all stone and no bark.


Petrified Tree is a variant of Trees found in Don't Starve Together. They yield Rocks, Flint and Nitre when mined with a Pickaxe, and therefore are alternatives to Boulders to obtain these resources.

Petrification process happens to all stages of Evergreens, and each Petrified Tree will yield resources based on its size. A default world can start with them in the place of boulders or some of the evergreens in the world will get petrified after a random amount of time.

When petrification starts, the Characters will note a noise coming from the trees nearby, right after, all the trees around will become petrified.

After petrification, trees can no longer be chopped down with an Axe, but can be mined with a Pickaxe instead. Petrified Trees do not grow, so they will stay in the same stage of growth when they had been transformed.

The Following table displays the drops from all sizes of Pertified Evergreens.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • In real life, petrification of trees occurs when a tree gets submerged in mineral-rich water. As the tree rots away, the minerals are left behind still in a tree shape. The original wood does not become stone.
