Vegetation is fundamental part of the DayZ Standalone environment similar to animals. There are numerous kinds of plants in Chernarus, some of which can be beneficial to survivors.

General[edit | edit source]

Plants can be found in every part of Chernarus, with the obvious exception of the sea. The vegetation follows the natural order and can be viewed as specifically as evergreen versus deciduous trees, flowers versus bushes, etc.

A large part of the northern area is covered by coniferous or mixed forests, known as the "black forests" because of their depth and inviolateness. The southern part of the Northern Province suffered through thoughtless construction, so that the original coastal fauna and flora can only be found sporadically, mostly aside the mainland. The best known such place is the Skalisty Island, which during the start of the 90's was declared a nature preserve within the frame of the newly declared Zagorie Protected Natural Area.

One important distinction to make regarding plants in Chernarus is their usefulness. While all of them have their place in nature, some plants can be harvested for resources by survivors in order to be crafted into tools or weapons, eaten as food, or turned into a medical resource. Being able to make this distinction could quite literally save your life, or at the very least make surviving easier. In addition to hunting and fishing, gathering plant resources makes it viable to survive while avoiding towns and urban areas.

Types of Vegetation[edit | edit source]
