A Maple Tree is a type of Tree. It grows from a Maple Seed, so long the area in a one tile radius remains clear. A properly planted Maple Seed has approximately a 20% chance of growing to the next stage each day, though Maple Trees do not grow in Winter. The median time to maturity is about 18 days, with over 90% of seeds maturing in less than 32 growing days.
Maple Trees outside the farm (except in Pelican Town) can be chopped down or tapped. These trees will respawn as Stage 3 saplings (20% chance each day) and grow as normal after that, as long as the stump is removed.
If a tree or other items are directly adjacent, the tree will not grow to maturity, but halts at stage four. Once fully grown, items can be placed next to the tree without affecting it adversely. Trees can be planted next to stones, ponds, cliff edges and even the greenhouse and still grow to full maturity provided they are not next to another tree. Pathing such as cobblestones have no effect on tree growth.
Maple trees have a chance to drop a Hazelnut when shaken or chopped down during the last 2 weeks of Fall.
Stages of Growth
|Stage 1||Stage 2||Stage 3||Stage 4||Stage 5 - Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter|
Normally a Maple Tree can be planted only on The Farm, or in select spots of tillable soil outside the farm. However, an Acorn, Maple Seed, or Pine Cone can be planted in the tilled tile left by digging up an Artifact Spot, no matter where it occurs.
