"Early lumberyards were labor-intensive and highly dangerous. The medieval period saw such technological advancements as animal and water-powered saws."


  • Lumberyards hold the wood you produce. Keep your lumberyards well protected from invading armies. Upgrade them to increase your wood storage capacity.

Offensive Strategy

  • Attacking and destroying these is the best way to get wood from a castle.

Defensive Strategy

  • Lumberyards should be protected by defensive structures because destroying one will reward the attacker with a lot of wood.
  • It is wise to have them behind walls instead of outside them.
