Which Webkinz Friends building material resources are best?

See also

Building materials are necessary for building the Webkinz Friends businesses, community buildings and entertainment buildings. Having a steady supply of building materials early on in Webkinz Friends is very important as it will allow you to build businesses as needed for quests without taking long pauses to collect materials. Getting a steady supply going is easy if you know which plants produce the best results for building materials.

There are six resources that produce building materials, minus the ones that require Kinzgems to purchase and place. Of these, three are ideal for getting, and sustaining, a steady supply of building materials for your Webkinz Friends town.

Giant pine tree

Giant pine tree

The most cost efficient method is to plant giant pine trees. This tree unlocks at level 3. 
The giant pine tree costs W250 and produces 175 building materials over 5 uses. It takes 1 hour to become harvestable. Each building material unit comes out to W1.43. 
Surprise pond

Surprise pond

The second option is to place a surprise pond. It unlocks at level 10. 
The surprise pond is a one-time purchase of W4,000 that produces 80 building material units every 4 hours. This pond has unlimited uses once placed. This is a poor choice for the beginning of the game, due to the lack of funds you’ll most likely have, but it is an effective method for later in the game when you have a bit of spare Kinzcash. It gives you a great way to keep a steady supply of building materials funneling into your Kinzville. 
Mill Ganz


Because you can only place one surprise pond, it may not be able to keep up with large building requirements late in the game. For W50,000 you can place a mill which produces an additional 150 building materials every 24 hours. The mill unlocks at level 24 and has unlimited uses. While the starting cost is very high, if you use it continuously, it will eventually even out to a better price than repeatedly harvesting giant pines. The 150 produced per harvest also saves on energy use.
