Sinister Wood is a type of wood that was introduced during the 2015 Halloween Update, along with Spook Wood, and became an annual occurrence every successive October. It is the most elusive tree in the game; out of a 100 Spook Trees, only one may spawn.
Similarly to Spook Wood, this tree is generally sold among players, used for blueprints, or duplicated due to its unique neon color and rarity. Disclaimer: The Lumber Tycoon 2 Wiki does not support duplication of any kind!
Sinister trees use the same growth inputs as Spook, commonly growing twisted, bent, and complex, though it is modified to possess neon bark and interior (without any color change) and to be much rarer. Thus, it is simply a misconception that Sinister grows differently than Spook. Originally, it was believed that Sinister tended towards thinner branches, but this is not true. The planks also entirely possess a neon texture which emits an orange glow.
As of 2019, Sinister trees no longer possess their neon colored exterior nor reflect sunlight, unlike Spook wood.
Unlike Spook Wood, Sinister Wood is not as heavy as it.
The tree grows on any material named Ground, Road, or Slate (in Roblox Studio).
- Slate: any rock or cliff in the game, color does not matter.
- Ground: typically grass that trees grow on in their respective biomes.
- Road: any road in the game, with the exception of Safari roads (as they are named "Read", possibly due to a typographical error).
A major misconception about Sinister hunting is "hot spots" that it grows in. Sinister trees will tend to grow in areas with more parts that it can choose from, typically around the Swamp, the Mountainside, the Taiga, and the Tropics.
Spook Wood, along with Sinister Wood, typically began to grow when Defaultio announced "It's about to get spooky" on Twitter. However, he did not tweet this in 2017, 2018, and 2019, and it is unlikely that he will either in the future.
