Stardew Valley Trees

Let’s get to the basics.

We don’t plant trees in Stardew Valley only for aesthetics. 

The wiser use will be to become a tapper and simply tap it.

Depending on the tree type, we can create pine tar or oak resin and a maple syrup.

When your trees produce lots of syrup and fruits, you can either sell them or use them for your own.

Here’s the goal!

You must use the vast space you have in the Stardew Valley. Also you have to plant and raise many varieties of trees and crops, as well as animals.

And this will not be easy.

Patience is a virtue in this game, and fruits would take some time to grow before you can pick them.

Aside from that,

A frequent question many amateur players face is, how do you distinguish common trees from fruit trees?

And this is as simple as it sounds!

Observe the trees. When it holds fruits, it’s a fruit tree. You can gather them once in a while. Meanwhile, the common one doesn’t have those, yet, you might still want to have it for syrup and resin. 

Usually, you gather them for the woods. But in Stardew Valley, you will engage in a whole new different kind of farming.

Now we will discuss these common trees to be aware of how we could use them.

The Common Trees:

  1. Maple Trees- If you roam around the Stardew Valley, you’d undoubtedly meet maple trees. What other players do is to cut them since they disrupt your farming. What you can do is to tap and collect their syrup every seven or eight days. 

You can sell each piece for 200 g. Just know that to plant one, you will need the maple seeds.

  1. Oak trees- Like Maple, you can also see these trees almost everywhere. To make resin, you will need this tress each six to seven days. You can plant it through acorns. 
  2. Pine trees – These trees belong to the conifers type. It is abundant in the forest. The final product is pine tar, which you can acquire every four to five days. 

Fruit trees:

  1. Apricot – You need to be mindful of this since spring is the only time you can plant and harvest apricots. For the outstanding quality apricot fruits, you’ll gain 100g per piece. And if this interests you, just go to Pierre’s store and buy a sapling which costs 2000g. 
  2. Cherry – Like apricot, spring is also the sole season you can plant and harvest cherries. When sold, each piece costs 160g. 

But if you want a better income, you can collect the saplings and sell them at Pierre’s. You can buy it for 3400g per sapling.

  1. Orange – You can plant and harvest oranges during summer. The fruit costs 200g  for the superior quality ones. And like the other fruit trees, you can buy the saplings at Pierre’s for 4000g.   
  2. Peach – Similar plant which you can harvest and plant during summer is peaches. Each peach means an extra 280g profit. 

But the sapling at Pierre’s is a little expensive, and you will have to spend 6000 g for a sapling. 

  1. Apple – There are also fruits that you can gather and plant during autumn, and these are apples. They are used mainly as the main ingredient for cranberry candies and, you can sell them for 200g. Like other saplings, it is also available at Pierre’s and will cost you 4000g.
  2. Pomegranate – Another fall-season tree is the pomegranate. You can harvest them every day and put them in the market for 280g. Its sapling can be bough for 6000g each. 

Special trees:

  1. Mushroom Trees –  The likelihood of having this in your fam during the autumn season is so small. You cannot plant these trees. They just appear out of nowhere. However, if you don’t want them, you can just chop them down or tap.
  2. Palm Trees – The Caico Desert is the only place that you can find these trees. Shaking or chopping them is the way to get its coconuts. There’s no chance for you to plant this one since you cannot get its seeds or use your tapper. 

But before you start planting,

You need to hear this.

Trees could withstand all seasons, but you cannot always get their fruit. Each fruits trees have a corresponding season to which they bear their fruits. That’s the only chance you’d get. 

And a fact you must remember!

There is a maturation period for trees. And when it reaches one year, it’s fruit is labeled star-quality fruits. A second-year-old tree will give you gold-quality fruits. 

So, make sure to remember where you plant them!
