Wood production does not require any other raw materials but workforce. The measuring unit is cubic meter (CM).

Is wood a good investment?

Yes. Manufacturing wood is a good investment. Since wood is needed for almost everything, a good supply of wood, when produced and sold, will bring profit to the company, as most all other production companies will need some, or possibly a lot of wood.

How to start a Wood Company?

You will find everything you need to know about opening a Company in this tutorial: How to create a Company in Anno1777 Long story short this is what you need to get your company up and running:

1. Go to the “My Companies” Menu on the left side of Anno1777 site, click on “OPEN”. You will be presented with all the companies available. Click on “OPEN” next to Wood Production.

2. Enter the name and description of your company, then add a picture to it (if you’re having troubles uploading the picture make sure that in the address bar of your browser it’s www.anno1777 and not http://anno1777 or anno1777).

3. Invest some money into your company so you can buy your first tool and for salaries. The amount you need to invest depends on the type of tool you will buy (Q1 or Q5 and their prices in your country.

4. Go to the “Goods” menu on the left, then to the “Machines” tab and on the “Wood Production” tab you can buy the tool. Click on the 1st star for Q1 tools and on 5th star for Q5 tools. Always try to buy the 5 star if financially possible. Q5 tools are much, much better than Q1 tools, and they last much longer. While more expensive at first, it will be cheaper per CM produced.  You might try to find a seller and make a private deal with him, it will be cheaper than buying from the market.

5. Then go to your Company’s menu and click on the “Licenses” tab then on the “Buy” tab here you can buy the licenses for your company.

6. Optionally (but sometimes highly recommended) open more workplaces and branches. More workplaces will mean that you can hire more people at a time to produce wood, which will drastically speed up your production. If your country has a pretty good economy you a good number is at least five workplaces to produce wood. Opening a branch in a new region will allow you to sell and recruit workers from that region. Only open branches in regions that have wood as a raw resource.

You can check this by going to Regions – Resources, and look for the little sawing wood symbol. It doesn’t matter if the stock is currently zero, because it will be replenished on the first of the next month. At the beginning of each month, resources are restored to all the regions, and you only want to build branches where wood is going to be available.

While opening branches is a very good idea you should be very careful because if your country loses the region in which you opened a branch you will not be able to use that branch until your country gets the region back and sometimes this may even take months.

7. You only want to have braches in areas with wood, but you can sell it anywhere that you have a branch.

8. Once you are up and running, frequently check your operations, to make sure you are not out of money or resources, or your whole company will shut down, and you could miss some production or selling opportunities. Usually, a company will shut down if there are no resources available in one area, because it has used them up for the month, but this has the effect of closing down all branches, even where there are no problems.

9. Place your wood for sale. Watch prices of competitors, and make your own business decisions.

So, in conclusion, the wood company is one of the cheapest companies on the market like all extracting companies are and you can make a good steady profit if you manage it well and open branches in areas with wood available as a raw resource.
