Decorate your charming island to your vision by planting trees in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH). Find out how close you can plant trees to each other, how long trees take to fully grow, and other tree-planting basics to build your ideal island with below!
For a tree to fully grow, it needs 1 free space in all directions. If there are cliffs, water, or buildings in those spaces, the tree will not grow.
Trees can be planted next to each other, given that there's at least 1 space apart. This goes for any direction. To check, you should be able to walk past between trees.
If you make a mistake, you can always move trees with your shovel.
Choose a spot with enough space, and open up your pockets to plant the sapling.
With your shovel on hand, you can also use it to dig a hole where you want the tree to be and plant the sapling.
From left to right, Nursery Tree, Small Young Tree, Medium young Tree, Large Young Tree, and a Fully-Grown Tree.
The stages are the same for any kind of tree, including bamboo.
|1||Craft or buy any shovel|
|2||Eat one of any fruit|
|3||Dig up the tree with the A Button|
|4||Replant the tree|
Any shovel is fine for digging up trees.
You can craft shovels with DIY or buy them the cabinet at Nook Shopping if you don't have one in hand!
While holding a shovel, press A in front of a tree to pull it up and place it in your pockets. You can then replant the tree.
You can replant trees you've dug up! You won't have to cut down trees and plant seeds from scratch.
Use this tip to redecorate your island accordingly!
