Timber Harvest is similar to Isis' Prosperity god power, although it provides a faster gathering of wood rather than gold. It is best to use in the Classical Age as this is when it will be necessary to construct important buildings, such as houses, war academies and the armory. Players should consider first researching Hand Axe and Shennong's Wheelbarrow improvement to increase the gathering rate of peasants and the amount of wood they can carry. Bow Saw can also be researched if it's affordable. Then players can either cast Timber Harvest with several peasants woodcutting to have an abundance of wood or when they need to assign peasants to other tasks and still ensure a steady income of wood.
