Want to know how to knock down timber pines in Fortnite? While these trees have been with us since Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1, the area around them has changed dramatically. However, with the Reality Falls tree slowly taking over the island, this may be the last time we can appreciate these colossal conifers.

One challenge this week asks you to knock down Fortnite timber pines with a Fortnite Ripsaw Launcher. They’re different from regular pine trees in how they look, where you can find them, and what happens when you destroy them. However, once you locate these tall trees, you only need to knock down five timber pines with the Fortnite Ripsaw Launcher to complete the challenge. This is worth doing as you’ll gain lots of experience towards the battle pass and unlock this season’s Fortnite skins and some free Fortnite V-bucks.

If you’ve not finished the previous challenges, we have some guides for the more challenging tasks, such as how to kill Darth Vader, where to find Fortnite diving boards, and all of the Fortnite reality seeds locations. But before we get too ahead of ourselves, here is where you can find the timber pines in Fortnite.

You can find many timber pines towards the northwest corner of the map, close to Logjam Lotus and Shifty Shafts. Look for the tallest trees with the paler trunks. When you hit them enough with your harvesting tool, they will fall over, leaving behind a tree stump that you can destroy.
