    There is never a need for more than two saws since there isn't a need for more than 4 trees in your farm. So that one extra saw and a few plats are hardly "wasting mats". Given how annoying it can be to pick up a saw when you've just farmed a tree, and how often people mess up the seeds because of this, in addition to people sometimes stealing your saws, locking your saws is a good tactic especially when there's inexperienced players on your team.

    If you build it 3high, the logs always fall down correctly. even if you don't this doesn't happen often, plus wasting wood is not a major concern when you have a farm. They don't take up a lot more resources, they don't take up a ton of space (?) and EVERYTHING could be easily destroyed by a keg. It seems like you're advocating against woodfarms in general?

    The only point in doing this is so people can't steal the saw. The reason stealing the saw is bad is because then you have to buy another saw. So when you buy another saw anyway right from the get go, that defeats the purpose. I just don't see why you would do this.

    Because if you make a saw, and it is stolen, and then you make another, and it is stolen, and then you make another you have made 3. Or you could have made 2 and locked them. Additionally...

    This tactic, like all tactics, is situational. It is best suited to tree farms with 2 trees.

    Or you can just tell people to not steal the teams saws. They'd probably listen and if not you can just kick them

    I almost never see people steal saws though. Maybe once every ten games, and then people always yell at them and they don't do it again. Most of the time the saw isn't even broken and can just be returned to the tree.

    Now see I've been telling them this but the words just bounce off their foreheads with a hollow sound.

    Correct me if wrong, but saws require 50 stone per saw now. That's not a trivial amount of stone
