This article is about non-fruit trees. For Fruit Trees, see the Fruit Trees page.

Trees that do not yield fruit are of two types: common, and special. Fully grown common trees yield resin, tar, or syrup when tapped with a Tapper, or wood and sap when felled by an axe. After Foraging Level 1, felling common trees also produces some of the tree's own seed. Common trees that grow outside of The Farm will grow back without the need to plant a seed. Special trees have their own unique characteristics.

Common Trees can be planted in the Greenhouse.

Common Trees

Three varieties of common trees grow on The Farm and within Stardew Valley. Their sap may be used to produce syrup via a Tapper, and their Wood has many uses, including Crafting and building construction/upgrades.

To chop down a tree, simply hit it repeatedly with the axe until it falls. A felled tree always falls sideways (left or right), never up or down. When the player is at its left or right, it falls away from the player. When the player is in front or behind, it falls to the side away from where the player approached the tree (needs confirmation).

Upon falling, a tree releases items (such as wood or seeds) in the area where the upper part of it impacts the ground. The direction of its fall thus becomes particularly important near bodies of water, since all items that fall into water disappear forever. Rings like the Magnet Ring are very useful when chopping trees, as they allow the player to pick up items within a wider radius, reducing the need to cut obstacles to get to the fallen wood.

Stardew Valley author Concerned Ape has confirmed on Twitter that trees do not regrow from a stump, contrary to a common opinion. Thus, it is generally useful to clear the land of a stump to make it available for any planting, which also requires new seed. Alternatively, it may be useful to chop down trees growing outside The Farm but leave the stumps intact if foraging or searching for Artifact Spots, so that a large area can be seen at a glance without the need to walk behind each tree.

For maximum growth, common tree seeds are best planted in the center of a clear 3x3 grid. If other objects occupy this grid, the tree may not grow. If a fully grown tree is adjacent to a seed/sapling, the seed/sapling will not grow beyond a sapling. During the winter season, seeds do not sprout and there is no tree growth. A properly planted seed has approximately a 20% chance of growing to the next stage each day during Spring, Summer, or Fall, or in the Greenhouse.

Once a tree is fully grown, its surrounding area can be paved without ill effects, although the paving will prevent the tree from dropping seeds.

Unlike Fruit Trees which produce Coal for 3-4 days after being hit by lightning, common trees hit by lightning are destroyed, leaving only a stump (and some wood or sap) behind.

Maple Tree

Maple Trees grow from Maple Seeds. When tapped, they yield Maple Syrup every 7-8 days. Maple trees have a chance to drop a Hazelnut during Fall.

Oak Tree

Oak Trees grow from Acorns. When tapped, they yield Oak Resin every 6-7 days.

Pine Tree

Pine Trees grow from Pine Cones. When tapped, they yield Pine Tar every 4-5 days.

Special Trees

Special trees have uncommon properties and yields.

Mushroom Tree

Mushroom Trees are a rare occurrence on the farm. Each Fall, there is a chance for a fully grown common tree to change into a Mushroom Tree during the night. Mushroom Trees cannot be planted, but they do spread like other trees, and yield Red or Purple Mushrooms when chopped down. They can be tapped and will yield mushrooms over time.

Palm Tree

Palm Trees are found only in The Calico Desert. They do not drop seeds, but may occasionally drop a Coconut when chopped down or shaken. They cannot be tapped.
