HOW TO GROW TREES IN STARDEW VALLEY?

The first question is which type of tree to choose?
Well, in fact, tree farming is not very profitable compared to crops, but trees are sure a very good looking part of a farm and should really be considered since they are not useless. Try many of them if possible, because there is no very noticeable difference between profits from each of these trees. But if a profit is your number one goal – there is an exception:
Plant trees in your greenhouse. Once you have a greenhouse, you can plant many various crops in it, but take a look at empty tiles around the growing-area – you can plant trees here! You are able to plant 16 trees in that area, but you cannot plant anything else than trees here, so it means that you are not wasting any space. By the way, trees in a greenhouse reproduce all year long!
How to actually grow trees?
First of all, go to Pierre’s general store and buy yourself a desired sapling. Once you get back to your farm – plant it wherever you like. Remember that each tree requires 8 empty tiles around it to grow. It means that if you plant many trees in one line – the smallest possible gap between each of them has to be 2 tiles.
A fruit tree will fully grow in 28 days. After that, a tree will reproduce fruits every day during a relevant season.
After all, you can sell these fruits or use them for crafting recipes.
And that is it! Tree farming is really simple and you should try it, especially if you have a greenhouse built already.
