Chop Wood is a quest available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This is a radiant quest in which the Dragonborn can earn GoldIcon for selling firewood. A woodcutter's axe must be in the inventory in order to cut wood at a chopping block.


Each chop produces 2 firewood at no true cost to the Dragonborn, other than the need to have a woodcutter's axe in their inventory. Each wood chop produces 2 pieces of wood, worth 5 GoldIcon, and weighs 5 WeightIcon each.


The following people will purchase any firewood in the Dragonborn's inventory at once for the base asking price.
