Cindersap Forest is the area located south of the Farm, and includes the Traveling Cart, the Wizard's Tower, the Abandoned House, Leah's Cottage, and Marnie's Ranch. It has exits to the north into the farm, the east into Pelican Town, to the south into The Sewers, and to the northwest into the Secret Woods. Cindersap Forest contains a large variety of Trees. These trees behave normally, yet do not need to be re-planted once they have been chopped down: a new Tree will reappear in its place as long as the stump is removed.
At the start of the game, there are several twigs, rocks, and weeds in the upper part of the Forest. If cleaned up, the debris will reappear each Spring 1.
Located just south of the path to Pelican Town, this is where Leah lives.
An extension of the southern river with several islands. River Fish can be caught here, and its deeper waters are home to the Glacierfish in the Winter.
Located to the southwest of the pond, this run down building will open up shop when you start earning Achievements. Once open for business, a mouse will sell you hats based on the achievements you've unlocked.
Located on the western side of the map, the Wizard lives here. You can enter the tower once you have been in the Community Center for the first time, examined the letter in the Crafts Room, and received a letter from the Wizard.
The Secret Woods is the area adjacent to the northwest corner of the forest that is blocked by a Large Log, which the player can chop up once the Steel Axe upgrade has been done. It is a natural habitat for a variety of Slimes and a good source of Hardwood. Note that there is a hidden section accessible by walking down through the trees that contains two more stumps, slimes, and potential foraging spots. All Hardwood stumps re-spawn every day.
The pond inside the woods is the only place where one can catch the Woodskip, aside from the Forest Farm.
Appears every Friday and Sunday from 6:00am to 8:00pm along the northern edge of the map and sells a wide selection of random goods.
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:
