How to plant and grow trees in Valheim

I speak for the trees.

Players can plant and grow various trees in Valheim by harvesting seeds drop when players fully chop down trees and chop their logs. The types of trees players can plant and grow can be seen listed below.

If you want to plant and grow any of the trees listed above, you must harvest and chop down the tree first. Doing so will drop a seed that can then be taken and planted using a cultivator. 

You can make the cultivator with five core wood and five bronze bars inside a level one workbench. Once you get the cultivator, find a tree you want to grow and chop it down to get its seed.

When you find the seed, right-click the cultivator and find the seed under the plant list, and left-click it to plant it. 

How to grow trees in Valheim

To grow trees in Valheim, players must first plant tree saplings. Once planted, they will grow after a few in-game days. However, it may prove tricky to plant and grow certain trees—the reason is that seeds for trees such as the Birch and Oak are scarce.

Because of this, you are better off spawning them to save you the trouble of finding and grinding seeds. Here's a complete seed list with spawn codes below to help you out.
