How can I get a lot of wood quickly?

The point of building walls is to keep zombies out and give you time to engage or flee
The point of building walls in the game is to keep zombies from getting through and to give you time to either engage them or flee. Building structures is the best way to keep zombies out, and it’s also helpful in giving you time to react to them. Walls break the line of sight, so they are good for hiding from zombies. They also act as a barrier when trying to escape. Fortified windows and doors can help keep zombies from getting into your home, but they will still try to break through if they see you. If you leave your home open, zombies will flow right through. You may have to deal with a straggler occasionally, but it is not a difficult fight.
