Tropico Wiki

For buildings of the same name in other Tropico games, see Logging Camp.

Logging camps are resource buildings in Tropico 5. They're used to cut down nearby trees and haul them off as logs, which can be sold as exports immediately, processed into lumber at a lumber mill, or further processed into furniture at a furniture factory. Logging camps will self-destruct once most nearby trees are cut down.


Being a lumberjack is a serious condition characterized by the sudden desire to sing about your occupation and whether or not you are okay. Other symptoms include trying to listen to trees falling when there is no one around.


  • Power Saw - $700: The Logging Camp is equipped with power saws for the lumberjacks to use, increasing effectiveness by 30 but starts to consume 50 MW of power.
  • Reforestation - $1000: Lumberjacks are supplied with tree saplings and are required to plant them for every tree cut down, making the Camp grow new ones over time, but the budget is doubled due to said saplings being bought in the process.


  • Produces 350 Logs per month into storage of capacity of 3500 units.
  • Monthly Profit = (Logs Cost * Amount)/1000 = (600 * 350)/1000 = $210
  • Cuts Trees in 8 tile radius. 10 trees per min.


  • Standing Component - environmentalists -10.
  • Pollution - 30 over 19 tiles.
