A Mushroom Tree is a tree that spawns according to a rare event in Fall. It can be chopped down using an axe and will drop 5-6 Red or Purple Mushrooms (plus one for the stem). It does not yield seeds when shaken or chopped down, but it will spread seeds like a common tree. If unobstructed, seeds spread by a Mushroom Tree have a 20% chance to grow to the next stage each day during Spring, Summer, or Fall. During Winter, Mushroom Tree seeds/saplings do not grow, and fully-grown Mushroom Trees will be reduced to a stump. The stump may regrow in Spring.
Obtaining the first Mushroom Tree is a random event that can only happen in the Fall. On each day of Fall there is a 5% chance of a spawning event being triggered. When triggered, the game engine will choose 10 farm tiles at random. If any of those ten tiles have a fully grown, untapped forest tree (or tree stump), then that tree will transform into a Mushroom Tree (or Mushroom Stump). A Mushroom Stump can grow into a Mushroom Tree, but not until the next Spring.
A Mushroom Tree can be tapped with a tapper. It yields Red Mushroom, Purple Mushroom, and Common Mushroom when tapped, except during the Winter.
Stages of Growth
- A player may obtain weeds by chopping a seed dropped by a Mushroom Tree with a tool. The weed can then be placed on the ground and harvested to obtain fiber, or sold through the Shipping Box for 50g.
