A tree is a terrain feature of Animal Crossing, they can be in many different forms and can be shaken, that could result with the tree spawning items, furniture or even bees! Trees are mostly used for decoration and fruit harvesting in Animal Crossing. They can also be used to make habitats for bugs or to block people. Trees appear in every Animal Crossing game to date.
To add a tree you'll need to first plant it. You will then need to water it as it goes through 4 different stages before it can become a fully grown tree. If at any of these stages (especially the first one's), the tree is not watered, it will die and you will be able to pluck it out, just like a weed.
To remove a tree you will need to repeatedly hit it with an axe until it fulls down and a stump is remaining. You will then need to dig it up with a shovel and then either press A or B. With A, the player will use his shovel to dig the hole back in, with B he will kick it in.
