There are a variety of bushes, ferns and other foliage found in The Forest that can be chopped down with any weapon to produce leaves. Leaves have a chance to drop with each hit, so using a weapon with low damage such as an Upgraded Stick will take more hits but produce more leaves.
Bushes, like herb plants and saplings, provide camouflage if the player crouches in them, making it harder for cannibals to spot the player. Areas with many bushes can make it harder for the player to spot wildlife and enemies, and to forage for mushrooms and small herbs such as Aloe, but they also provide camouflage for the stealthy player.
The following table shows the number of hits to destroy each bush with an Upgraded Stick. Each hit produces 1-2 leaves. (Please feel free to add the real names if you know them!) Note: Pondweed cannot be destroyed or removed even using rock paths, and it provides no camouflage bonus.
