For Birch Wood, teleport to the Statue of Seven in Dawn Winery in Mondstadt. The trees with the white trunks are spread across the area, and you can hit them while roaming in circles.

While hints might tell you to visit Dragonspine to get Pine Wood, you can farm it more easily in Mondstadt. The main city has a plethora of small pine trees around the Knight of the Favonius headquarters. This is not only a less time-consuming strategy but will help you in evading the cold in Dragonspine.

Guili Plains in Liyue is the best location to farm Sandbearer Wood. Two trees for this wood are located Southwest of the Teleport Waypoint, and others can be found in a little path in the Northwest.

It is worth noting that many trees with large trunks in Liyue do not drop wood after chopping.

As compared to the other woods in this list, getting Bamboo is definitely an easy task. The path to Qingce Village has a ton of Bamboo trees, and you just need to avoid hitting too many trees at once. Apparently, hitting multiple trees at once does not drop extra wood.

The Fragrant Cedar Wood is abundant in Mondstadt. You can teleport to Springvale and go Southwest from the Teleport Waypoint. These trees are very common in the area, and you can route farm them along the road going to Springvale.

Lastly, there’s Fir Wood. Teleport to the North of Dragonspine and go Northeast from the Teleport Waypoint. There are many trees in the area, and you simply start chopping them without caring much about a route.

YouTuber TSoul22 showcased the farming routes for the seven types of woods in a recent video.
