9. Dig Up Those Trees and Acquire Some Useful Lumber
GottaBeMobile.com advised players to add some more lumber to their inventory and avoid purchasing too many Diamonds:
• In the early stages of Boom Beach gold is plentiful but wood is a hot commodity. If you try to build something that you don’t have enough wood for the game will offer to sell you the supplies using Diamonds, but remember that diamonds are something you’ll need to buy with real money down the road.
• Tap on a tree and hit the shovel to turn 600 gold into 300 lumber. This is a pretty fair trade-off in the early parts of the game, especially if you build more residences and free villages to keep the gold flowing.
