Sap is a resource in ARK: Survival Evolved. It is obtained by using a Tree Sap Tap.png Tree Sap Tap on a Redwood Tree. It is used in some crafting recipes.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Sap is used to craft the following items:

Scorched Earth[edit | edit source]

In Scorched Earth, Sap can be rarely gathered by harvesting the Joshua trees (the "furry" ones) with any tier of Pickaxe and hatchet or a chainsaw to get a larger amount per tree. Joshua trees can be found in the Badlands and High Desert.

Fishing Comparison[edit | edit source]

It is also used as a bait when Fishing Rod.png Fishing, together with Leech Blood. It attracts only Coelacanth.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If needed in a steady supply, use multiple Tree Sap Taps as they gather sap incredibly slowly, for more information see the page on the Tree Sap Tap.png Tree Sap Tap.
  • Archaeopteryx, when set on wander, will slowly gather Tree Sap from certain Trees (Redwood and Joshua Tree). It collects around 1-2 Sap every 5–10 minutes (Values differ from the amount of trees it visits). You should build a cage around the tree to trap so don’t lose them or you can put a Transponder Node on your Archaeopteryx if you plan to use them for sap collection, as it is very easy to lose them.

Although the description says “unrefined sap”, sap cannot be refined in a forge as of now.
