Helmet Heroes Wiki


Chopping is a feature in Helmet Heroes in which the players can plant seeds to grow trees, which they can then chop down for logs used for Crafting and Houses (to be available in a future update). Every seed has a restriction on where they can be planted, thus only growing specific trees in those locations. These types usually correspond with the trees seen in the background of each area. Trees grow through three stages: Small, Medium, Large.

Along with this, is the Chopping proficiency. Planting seeds and chopping down trees will give the player Chopping XP that goes towards this proficiency. Planting seeds gives the player +30 Chopping XP, while chopping trees will periodically give the player +4 Chopping XP while they are damaging the tree. As the player's Chopping level increases, so does the damage they do to trees of all stages.

Seeds are a part of the Chopping feature. They are bought from Craftman located at the end of Craftman Falls, an extension of Deep Forest. Seeds are used to plant trees that players can then harvest logs from. Each seed can only be planted in specific locations, usually corresponding to the trees the player can see in the background of each area. Planting a seed gives the player +30 Chopping XP. In order to plant a seed, these conditions must be met (in this order):

  1. The seed is in a location it can be planted
  2. The seed is used on plant-able ground (not in the air, water, or on some floating platforms)
  3. The seed is not too close to another tree
  4. The seed is not too close to the edge of the ground
  5. The tree will not touch another ground above it when fully grown†

† This condition will arise if there is a coin box floating above the location, however the player can destroy the coin box and be able to plant the seed. Each seed's evolution and location restrictions can be found in the next section: Trees.



Trees are the product of planting seeds. Each tree has three stages: Small, Medium, and Large. When seeds are planted, they immediately begin in the Small tree stage. It takes approximately 16 minutes to grow to the next stage, taking in total 33 minutes to become a Large tree. Some trees have different variations, such as the Goof Tree and the Large Purple Tree, though only one of each is displayed here.

Players can chop a tree (using the 'C' key) at any of the three stages using any weapon (except the Fishing Pole), however it is recommended that they wait until a tree is at its Large stage, as they yield the highest chance of logs dropping, and the most logs. The drops are as follows:

  • Small Tree: 0-1 logs dropped
  • Medium Tree: 0-2 logs dropped
  • Large Tree: 0-5 logs dropped

Chopping trees will periodically give the player +4 Chopping XP. Leveling up the Chopping proficiency increases the damage players do to trees.

Trees can only grow in specific locations in the world, which usually correspond with the trees seen in the background of each stage (the exception to this being Weeping Willow trees being plant-able in Lotus Eye Bog and Carnelia's Woods).

Pressing the 'P' key will display vital information about the tree, including its Health (green bar) and the growth progress (blue bar, though Goof Tree growth bars may appear as different colors).

Below you will find each type of tree in more detail.

  • Chopping was hinted at months before it's release, and a bugged Red Mushroom Log and Blue Mushroom Log could be obtained from the Item Slot Machine in Snowy Flats (each of the items took on the look of a Sliver in the inventory) one week prior to the release. This item could not be sold, dropped,traded, nor used, and made it so the player was unable to trade. This bug was resolved when the Chopping update was released on September 3rd, 2014.
