The Sap Collector is a building that collects sap automatically for the player, it was added in update v0.18 of The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

It can be built from the utility structure section of the survival guide. It must be built on a tree, some trees won't accept sap collectors.

Once built, it will collect tree sap over time. The player can then periodically harvest it from the pot. The sap collector can only gather a maximum of 30 tree sap, and will not collect more until the player harvest it.

In multiplayer, different players will have access to their own sap from sap collectors. It doesn't need to be shared. For example, you will get 30 each if it is completely full.

You can carry an unlimited amount of sap, so making more than one sap collector can have benefits.

If you cancel a sap collector after you have placed the old pot, the old pot will disappear so be cautious.

Keep in mind that old pot are extremely useful for gathering water, fresh or polluted. Make sure you have access to water before using your old pot as you may be left without a means to obtain water.
