Nonono. You must equip AXES, it will help you kill the tree faster!
But really, I want people shouting that axes kill the trees faster. I want them to believe it so strongly that they will personally PM anyone NOT using an ax and use every word in their vocabulary to try and convince them that they should be USING A FUCKING AXE. Usually, this seems to be "Us ax!" and "Y fak u moter"
And I hope it pisses them off as much as these anti-skill anti-weapon shouting douchebags surrounding santa do me.
