Cindersap Forest during Spring

Cindersap Forest is a large exterior region found in the southwest part of Stardew Valley. It has exits to the north into the Farm, to the east into Pelican Town, to the south into The Sewers, and to the northwest into the Secret Woods. Cindersap Forest is the only place where you can find Spring Onions.

Two festivals take place in Cindersap Forest: the Flower Dance on Spring 24, and the Festival of Ice on Winter 8.

At the start of the game, there are many twigs, rocks, and weeds throughout the forest. If cleaned up, the debris will reappear each Spring 1.

Trash Bear

Trash Bear

The Trash Bear is located at the bottom of Cindersap Forest, by the Spring Onion patch and the entrance to The Sewers. Trash Bear will appear on the first non-rainy day of year 3. Interacting with Trash Bear will show a dialog bubble of a random desired item. After giving Trash Bear the requested item, clicking on Trash Bear will reveal another request. Fulfilling four requests will trigger a cutscene in which Trash Bear plays pan-pipes, flies up on an umbrella made of leaves, and then cleans up the trash in the unreachable area near the water, replacing the trash with bushes and trees. Trash Bear continues flying on the umbrella to Pelican Town, where the trash in Pam's front yard is removed. Dusty's dog pen also gets an upgrade.

Trash Bear will request 2 random seasonal fish or foraged items, then 2 cooked dishes. The requests don't have to be completed in the same day or even in the same season. Requests do not refresh at the start of each season. However, if the requested forage is seasonal then Trash Bear's request will change to fit the new season. Shown below is a complete list of the random seasonal items Trash Bear may request:

Foraging

Locations in Cindersap Forest where forageable items can spawn.

Standard forageable items found on the ground in Cindersap Forest are:[1]

Forageable items spawn at an average rate of 1.8 per night in spring and fall; in summer and winter the rate is 1.6 per night.[2] The map shows the possible locations as red and magenta tiles; when the original trees are present, the magenta tiles have a 90% smaller chance of spawning items because they are identified as being behind the original trees.

Spring Onions are also found in Cindersap Forest during the Spring. They only appear on tillable soil on the large southeastern island (the green tiles on the map). Every night, any existing onions are removed, and new onions spawn. These onions are not standard forageable items, and therefore do not count as part of the six item per map limit.

The forest also contains a large variety of Trees, which can be chopped down to harvest Wood and other items. As with all pre-existing trees outside the Farm, they will automatically regrow as long as the stump is removed.

Artifact Spots

Artifacts that can be found by digging up Artifact Spots in Cindersap Forest are:

Other possible items are:

Artifact spots spawn at an average rate of 0.1 per night, except in winter when the average rate increases to 1.0 per night.[4]

Villager Paths

Villager Paths in Cindersap Forest

Several villagers walk through northern section of the Forest at various times, so items may be destroyed. However, items placed in the southern half of the forest are always safe.

Fishing

Fishing Zones in the Cindersap Forest river.

Cindersap Forest is the only map with different bodies of water that contain different fish: the river and the pond.

Fishing is also part of the festivities during the Festival of Ice.

The forest is bordered to the south by the ocean. While it is possible to cast a fishing rod from the cliffs down to the ocean (near the bridge that leads to the area where the Flower Dance takes place), you will only catch river fish there and not ocean fish.

River

The primary fishing location in Cindersap Forest is the river flowing through it. It is an extension of the river found in Pelican Town, and therefore contains mostly the same river fish. Two fish, Chub and Dorado are found in the forest river but not in town; the Smallmouth Bass is found in town but not in the forest river (it is, however, found in the forest pond). Also, the forest river is home in Winter to a Legendary Fish, the Glacierfish.

Pond

Fishing Zones in the Cindersap Forest pond.

The second body of water for fishing in Cindersap Forest is the large pond in its northwest corner. Its selection of fish is more limited than the river (Carp, Catfish, Midnight Carp, Perch, Pike, Smallmouth Bass, and Walleye, dependent on season).
