    if a tree spawns with frostwood will it always spawn frostwood or will it spawn something else when it resets.

    It will reset. The resource changes implemented a couple years ago cause ore and wood to be randomized. It's a two factor formula. First there's the chance of it changing, then the roll to determine what it will change to. By far frostwood is the most rare resource, IMO rarer than valorite. Honestly even Bloodwood seems more rare than valorite.
     
  3. I hear that if you are carefull not to harvest all of the wood it will stay as frostwood forever but I haven't found one yet since the changes so I am not sure.

    That's just a rumor, Kallie. The devs have stated even one swing on a tree is sufficient to cause the check for random change to kick in.
