Clear Forest is an ability that turns a forest tile into a field tile and gives the player one star. The ability is unlocked by the Forestry technology and can only be used on forest tiles in the player's territory without any buildings or structures on them. If the ability is used on a tile with a wild animal, the wild animal will be forfeited.

The ∑∫ỹriȱŋ tribe does not have access to this ability.


In update 2.0.49, Clear Forest was moved from the Forestry technology to Free Spirit, and the number of stars each forest produced when cleared was reduced from two to one. In update 2.0.58, the star reward was reverted to two stars. In update 2.1, Clear Forest was once again reduced to one star but moved back to Forestry.
