Farming Simulator 22: How to sell Wood Chips and Harvesting
Farming Simulator 22 is a game where you have so many possibilities and tasks that you have to do. Since it is simulating a real life farm, you need to buy seeds, grow crops, buy machines such as a tank to transport water between your fields. Also, you can sell what you grow as an example being wood chips. We understand that it can be a bit daunting on remembering how to do all of these operations, so in this article, we will cover the guidelines of how to sell wood chips in your Farming Simulator 22.
Where can I sell my firewood in Farming Simulator 22?
Why should you sell this wood? Well, first of all, when you sell it, you will make money from it that you can use for your crops. In order to start selling you should know that you are able to sell already uncut trees, firewood, wood chips, and other tree parts in different sizes or lengths.
The game’s rules allow all players to cut any trees that are on their land. You might already guess that in such a case, you can actually own so many trees. However, we must tell you that not all of the trees are equally worth selling. As an example, let’s take Raverport. In that area, you can find a lot of trees but they’re not really worth growing because they have a really specific shape.
How do you get wood on Farming Simulator 22
We want you to show you a few ideas on what to do with these trees:
- Cut down the tree you want and remove the biggest branches. Then, use a tractor to move the tree;
- Cut the trees into smaller pieces and use the crane to load them;
- Chop the trees into firewood and load onto any trailer by hand;
- Utilize wood chip machine to make a lot of wood chips;
Look for Straight trees
It probably makes sense to you as well that having straight trees is the best thing you can have. Why do you ask? Because the form of the tree is so good that you don’t need to cut them at all, they are good as they are. Actually, you can get the best value if you sell in one, long piece, so we advise you to just get selling them as they are!
Don’t forget that actually, you are able to choose how to sell your trees. It can either be long pieces of wood that you chopped or alternatively you can sell unchopped pieces. If you are not sure which way to take, you will need to first check out your machinery and tools. It all can depend on what tools you already own and if they can help you chop or not. We will let you know now a bit more information about which machines you need for each task.
Stepa FHL 13 AK is a name that you need to remember if you want to work with trees. It is a loader trailer and it doesn’t cost a lot of money to buy. Moreover, this equipment is extremely useful for maintaining trees, so you should definitely buy it when you start playing the game. You will be able to afford it and use it a lot. It will help you to cut your trees in smaller chunks and the trailer will be so useful to put them all there and bring them to the shop for selling. The recommended bale size for the trailer is 4 meters.
There is another piece of machinery that you can use and that is Fliegl Timber Runner. Its recommended bale size is 8 meters and it is the most useful for very tall trees.
There are a variety of machines that are suitable for loading trees into the trailers. For example, you can find a tractor, telehandler, or skid steer loader. We must warn you though those simple and light vehicles cannot be used for uncut trees.
In addition, we need to tell you more about other machines too. For instance, the Harvester. It is the perfect machine to cut your trees in different sizes. Seems like a good machine to have? Yes, indeed, but they can be expensive too, there is a range in price with these machines. You might think that buying a cheaper one would be the same as buying a more expensive one, but actually, that is not true. We want to tell you a bit more about that.
Let’s have a look at Komatsu/Ponsse that has a bale size of 8 meters recommended. It is a very expensive machine. The cheap option would be Sampo Rosenlew with a bale size of 6 recommended. So, as you can see already, a more expensive machine has more to offer and will be much more time-efficient for you.
Moreover, we want to tell you even more about other crucial vehicles that you need to know about in the Farming Simulator 22 game. For instance, let’s look at MAN TGX with a bale size of 6 meters.
- Don’t forget this very important factor! All of your trees no matter if they’re cut or uncut cannot have branches in them!
We already talked about how price impacts the greatness of the machines, but don’t be discouraged. Not all of your vehicles have to be very expensive. For example, if you are just starting the game, you don’t own a lot of trees then the cheaper vehicles will help you do your tasks alright too. DFM CFB-16 could be on your radar if you’re in such a situation!
Use belts for transporting
Be aware though when you are transporting your trees that they need to be stable and loaded very neatly into your machines. They are a heavy and large cargo and it has to be taken care of very well so that you don’t lose them on the way to the shop.
Forestry Machines trunks
If you are looking for disposal of trunks of the trees, look no further than FSI ST 65 T machine. You can easily find it under the Forestry Machines tab in your Farming Simulator 22 game.
Wood chips actually are a very important and great thing to have in your farm. They are actually easily made because you are able to use any large or small trees and you can also utilize the branches for making them.
If you want to make wood chips, you will need to get a specific machine designed for that. We will tell you a bit more about the different vehicles that you can choose from:
- JENZ HE 700 StA – go to the shop and click on the Objects tab. If you have this machine, you can put it anywhere on your farmland. Another great advantage of this machine is that you can sell wood chips automatically. But you probably have guessed already that this vehicle is an expensive tool to have – the cost is 100$ per day. However, if you can afford then it is an amazing tool to own.
- JENZ HEM 583 Z – if you have average bales, then this vehicle is perfect for you because it is designed exactly for that and it is powered by a tractor.
- JENZ BA 725 – this machine would be nice to use for average bales and tinier wood.
Bonus tip from us – if you want you are able to use any trailer for moving your wood chips.
Where do you sell wood chips in FS22?
There’s a woodchip sell point tucked away at the back of the sawmill that you can access even if you don’t own the sawmill. It looks just like the FS19 woodchip sell point (sort of circular fence full of woodchips, sell point in the entrance).
Buy seedlings and start planting trees
When we are talking about vehicles designed for machinery, we need to mention Damcon PL-75. This machinery is perfect for you if you want to plant trees in your field because it is made exactly for that purpose.
However, you need to know that before planting the trees, you will need to buy specific tree seedlings that. Some final tips for planting your trees:
- One stillage of trees will have 20 seedlings and no more;
- The best space between seedlings is around 5 meters;
- You don’t have to fertilize the trees;
Conclusions and profit

- Whole tree – 1200-1300$.
- 1 meter bales – 1800$;
- 2 meter bales – 2200$;
- 3 meter bales – 2500$,
- 4 meter bales – 3000$;
- 6 meter bales – 3350$,
- 8 meter bales – 3450$,
- Wood chips – around 1200$ – however, you should know that the prices of wood chips can fluctuate, it is not always stable.
If you want to sell your trees, you need to clean them beforehand. Keep these things in mind:
