Living Logs are items that are dropped by a Treeguard and Totally Normal Trees. They are used to craft several magic items, including a Shadow Manipulator, and can also be used as fuel for a fire. Living Logs will scream when burned on a fire and when eaten by the were-beaver form of Woodie, though this has no effect on gameplay.

Treeguards are powerful monsters and are difficult to take down. To more efficiently gather Living Logs, Treeguards can be enticed to fight other creatures such as Pigs, Tentacles, and Merms, who can wear down their incredible health. The player may also try a field of Tooth Traps, which aren't hard to lay down before the Treeguard catches up. If there is no other way, Treeguards can be kited fairly easily because of their low speed. It's possible to hit a Treeguard four times before it has a chance to strike back. There's a large sanity drain for doing this, and an unarmored player can be killed within a few hits. Also, Totally Normal Trees give Living Logs too. It's safer, and less time-consuming.
A Living Log may be used to repair a wooden wall. This works in a similar fashion to using a standard log, except that the Living Log repairs three times the wall health of a standard log.
A Living Log can be used to fuel a fire, but due to the difficulty in obtaining, this is not recommended.
- The Living Log's scream was added in the The End of the Beginning update.
