How do I get planks? (Closed)
I can't seem to ever get a plank for anything i do. I found a wood panel once (only once). I can't upgrade my barn (really need to). I've been looking out for a plank in the newspaper sales for ages now but they never come up! I spend all my diamonds hoping a chest will give me one but all I ever get is more coins (useless) or a hatchett (also useless to me). Is there a corp i can harvest a lot of that might give me a plank? anything i can do? I can hardly move forward in the game because my barn is always full. really annoying. i'm gonna give up playing soon as it's losing it's fun :P Can't i just use some of the wood from all the trees i've cut down? what kind of a farmer am I?!
Answer from: Expert
You can get them by just playing the game... Here's a short list =
1) Harvesting from Crops and Animals
2) Buying from other players
3) Finding them from treasure chests
4) (Maybe) Greg sells them?

I find planks hard to find too, you just have to keep an eye out for ones in the newspaper, I'm afraid when harvesting or collecting what you get is very random. If you have to you can spend diamonds on actually buying them rather then on the lucky chest, they cost 8 diamonds each, you can click on your barn, click increase storage and next to the plank, bolt ect. You can click the yellow plus sign with the amount of diamonds and this will get you the tools you need. Hope I helped and hope you don't quit the game!! X

I have planks & screws but I don't know how to use them. I know that you click on the trees to use the saws and cut them down but I can figure out how to use the planks and upgrade my barn! Help please!
Answer from: Anonymous
What you got to do is click on your barn and click upgrade or expand storage. It is at the bottom of the window when you click on the barn. Then you will need certain materials to upgrade it, then click upgrade

Marlyecal, do you have signs for others to come water your fruit trees and bushes? The wood planks and screws are very rare for my farm too. ;(. I actually thought of quitting too because we need storage. My crop harvesting once in weeks yields planks. The higher the level the harder it seems to get them. Good luck, my GC I'd: Fun4us! Join me

I just got a plank 30 second ago by getting I cow or pig food out of the food mill. By the way if it matters I'm level13.

Mine shows planks but when I go to upgrade my barn it says 0/1 planks
Answer from: Hedvina
Rocking Horse: Maybe you believe that you have planks, but you actually have wooden panels? They look almost the same, exept that they also have nails. I think wooden panels are easier to get than planks. :)

HEY! I just went to Lies' Thanks!'s Farm, and a random treasure chest popped up! When I clicked it, I got a plank! If you want to follow me, I'm SpartyMann. I just started, though, so I'm only a level 9.

Planks tapes and bolts r most precious things in game bcoz they need for increase barn capacity. U get them rendomly by palnting, harvesting and feeding

I have a hard time getting planks too. All I need is one and I was stuck on this for a long time. I tried planting lots of wheat, nothing! I am trying corn now. It is annoying when you get few planks to show up.
Answer from: Awesome
I am having the same problem. Although I have heard that if harvest wheat over and over again, you get little prizes like, Duck tape, screws bolts and PLANKS! So try that

I have had some luck finding planks by click thru every ad on the 1st 2 or 3 pages of the newspaper, although they are quite rare. The newspaper renews about every couple minutes. So just keep clicking away to see what you can find if you don't find what you need on the pages.
Also, in order to back out of someone else's Roadside Stand & get back to the newspaper ads, just click on the mail box on anyone's farm (look to the lower right corner when you're in the ads). I hope this is helpful & good luck!
Answer from: Victor
There's a small chance you find planks in wheat tho :) I found 2 so far, on like probably 500-1000 wheat :p

I have double of everything to upgrade my silo and my barn except I have 0 planks and 0 wood panels I have been searching for a week! Dumb! If I don't get some soon I'm done! DEVELOPERS MAKE THEM EASY TO GET SO YOU DONT HAVE TO SPEND REAL MONEY!
Answer from: Yoodeelayheehoo
I had the same problem. I just visited Greg's farm and found this treasure box. It contained a plank. Who would've thought that one small plank would make a guy like me so happy? Be patient. Your plank will come one day.
Answer from: Me
Harvesting crops ext can help but one thing I do is visit farms for chest. The key to seeing what's in them without paying for them is open them but if not what you want quickly double click out and hard close the app reopen app chest will still be somewhere on farm. Find that you should wait a few thow or next chest will be same thing.

Thanks lesley..u r ryt bcz of you I've got plank bcz u suggested to harvest maximum corns infact I got 2 planks. Thanks
Answer from: Milk&Honey Land
Each farm will have one rare item for upgrading a barn or a silo, whether it is a plank, wood panels, screw, bolt, nails or duct tape, mine are plank (for barn) and screw (for silo). These both item are very hardly to found around the farm, neither in treasure chest when visiting friend's farm. In contrary, I've got so many of other upgrading items like nails, wood panels, screw, bolt and duct tape (everyone will have 2 rare items and 4 common items). A same way is also working on expanding items (1 rare item and 2 common items). I've found a way to solve that problem. I was just looking for friends who had many planks and screw (my rare items) but lack of items which are in my common items list. I did item changes. So I got planks by giving bolts, etc. I hope this will help, good luck!
