Tree Growth Stages

ACNH - How long does it take to grow trees? - Tree Growth Stages
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.

Keep in mind that a tree reaches full maturity on the fifth day, so you can only stop it from growing from the second to fourth days.

How to Keep Trees Small

Plant Fruit Next to the Tree

ACNH - Keep Trees Small -  Plant Fruits Around the Tree

Once the tree has reached the size you want, plant a fruit next to it to stop it from growing into a Fully-Grown Tree.

We recommend planting the fruit behind the tree to hide it from view!

Use a Shovel to Move the Tree

ACNH - Stop Tree Growth - Use a Shovel to Move the Tree
As long as the tree has not fully grown, you can move it without stamina. This goes the same for shrubs and flowers.

Note that moving a tree to an open space causes it to grow, so be sure to plant a fruit next to it before the day ends!
