Lava Wood, also referred to as Volcano Wood or Red Wood, is the only tree that grows at the peak of the Volcano. It is mainly used as a means of making money, although it is debated that Gold Wood or Frost Wood gives more money in the long run. However, it is the most lethal type of wood to get to.
An axe specialized for this type of wood is the Fire Axe, from the Fiery Gift of Lumber - which is now not obtainable so can only be acquired with trading alongside other players. The Bird Axe is also specialised somewhat. Both of these axes do a large amount of damage to Lava Wood, but is not efficient at any other types of wood.
Lava Wood commonly grows thick and large, with branching angles similar to Spook Wood, Sinister Wood, and Cavecrawler Wood. It can have a few brown Concrete material leaves, along with a Bright Red exterior with a Really Red interior. Occasionally, the trunk will not fit into the Sawmax 02 or Sawmax 02L. It is recommended to use Hardened Axe or better, due to the thickness of the lower logs especially.
Lava Wood can only be reached by successfully passing through the volcano obstacle. After clearing, the tree must be cut down and either dropped from the top of the volcano, towards the area with the Birch Wood, or stored in a vehicle and driven down the Volcano or down the side of the Volcano. The first option is preferred as that has a smaller risk of dying inside the volcano. It is recommended to use a Sawmax 02 or sawmills more efficient when processing, as fully grown trees can be very large, especially the trunk.
