Sons Of The Forest – Tree Respawn Workaround

Workaround to regrow Trees in the Sons of the Forest game.

How It’s Done

  1. Start Sons Of The Forest and create a new Game, save and exit the Game.
  2. Open your File Browser and navigate to:

C:\Users\XXX\AppData\LocalLow\Endnight\Sons Of The Forest\Saves\YYY

Where “XXX” is your User Account Name and “YYY” your SteamID.

Note: Depending on your Windows Version, you have to enable “show hidden Files” to see the AppData Folder.

Alternatively you just can add “\AppData” to your Path while in your User Folder.

  1. Locate your fresh created Savegame.
  2. Copy the File “WorldObjectLocatorManagerSaveData.json” to a seperate Folder.
  3. Now copy your new created “WorldObjectLocatorManagerSaveData.json” from that Folder to your Savegame Folder (where you want to have your Trees respawned).

(Backup the old one. Even Better: the whole Folder. Just in Case.)

  1. Start SotF, load your Savegame and enjoy.


  • If there are Trees you don’t want to have in/around your Base/House, cut those Trees before anything else. Save and do the same Steps as described above.
  • Just this time, with the “WorldObjectLocatorManagerSaveData.json” from your Savegame and keep this File as “regrow” Backup in a different Folder.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
