Dean Hall has recently posted a message on twitter teasing about “Lumberjack” features. The community questionned the developer on reddit two days ago, and as often, more informations have been revealed.
DayZ. Soon to include lumberjack mode.

Actually Rocket has stated that we will be able to chope down trees (they will also fall over), gather wood and use it to make or feed fire places.
This feature remind the popular Dayz Epoch mod, where players could chope down trees aswell, in order to gather wood & lumbers. Unfortunately trees were not sync’d between players as new comers didn’t see the fallen trees.
Featuring the Dayz Standalone’s new engine, there are good chances that forest will be synchronized server-wide and should be reseted on server restart. As always, we hope that server performance won’t be too badly influenced.
