Fortnite Timber Pines are a new type of forest growth found in the battle royale, which changes up the process for harvesting materials. Representing one of the big additions made during the significant Fortnite Chapter 3 update, these specific trees stand out as they are considerably taller and have much thicker trunks than those around them. However, their main defining feature is that rather than vanishing when destroyed like other objects in Fortnite, they instead can be knocked down, and there are now several Fortnite quests that require you to take on the duties of a lumberjack using them. If you're ready to knock down Timber Pines in Fortnite or destroy Timber Pine stumps, then we've got the information and locations you need.

Fortnite Timber Pines locations are found across the snowy northwest section of the island, and are actually big enough to be seen on the map if you zoom in a bit. We've marked a lot of them on the map above, though this is not intended to be a completely exhaustive list of every place you'll find them. Basically, if you head to any of the indicated areas, you should easily be able to spot the tall Fortnite Timber Pines towering over everything around them.

To knock down Timber Pines in Fortnite, it should come as no surprise that you need to hit them with your harvesting tool. Although they are much bigger than regular trees they only have 200 HP, which means it should only take you a couple of well-aimed swings to knock them down. You'll know you've been successful when, rather than just disappearing, the main trunk of the Fortnite Timber Pine detaches and falls away from you. It is possible to continue harvesting more wood from the fallen section, but it becomes incredibly light, so it's likely to bounce away from you when you strike it. Knock down Timber Pines in Fortnite five times, and you'll have ticked off this particular quest.

For another quest you have to destroy Timber Pine stumps with a melee or ranged weapon in Fortnite, and this logically follows on from knocking them down. Once the tall trees have fallen, you'll be left with Fortnite Timber Pine stumps still embedded in the ground, so simply strike them with your pickaxe or shoot them with a ranged weapon to destroy them, and repeat three times.
