In Animal Crossing, you may need to cut down trees for various reasons – either to make way for new construction, or to gather materials. Trees can be cut down using an axe, and there are three different types of axes that can be used – flimsy, standard, and golden. In this guide, we’ll show you how to cut down trees in Animal Crossing, as well as how to use each type of axe.
The Right Tools for the Job
In Animal Crossing, you will need to use the right tools for the job when it comes to cutting down trees. The two main options are an axe and a saw.
If you have an axe, you can use it to chop down trees. This will take a bit of time, but it is the most common way to cut down trees. To use an axe, simply select it from your inventory and then approach a tree. Once you are close enough, you will see the option to “Chop Down Tree.” Select this option and then keep chopping until the tree falls over.
If you have a saw, you can use it to cut down trees much faster than an axe. To use a saw, simply select it from your inventory and then approach a tree. Once you are close enough, you will see the option to “Saw Down Tree.” Select this option and then keep sawing until the tree falls over.
The Right Time of Year
In Animal Crossing, trees can only be cut down during certain times of the year.
The best time to cut down trees is during the late summer and early fall. This is because the leaves on the trees will be very dry and will fall off easily.
You should avoid cutting down trees during the spring and summer because the leaves will be very green and will not fall off as easily.
The Right Tree
The first thing you need to do is find the right tree. There are two types of trees in Animal Crossing: perfect and regular. You can tell them apart by looking at their leaves. Perfect leaves will be a deep, rich green, while regular leaves will be a lighter shade of green. You’ll also notice that perfect trees have a higher density of leaves, while regular trees have more gaps in their foliage.
How to Cut Down a Tree
In Animal Crossing, every day new trees will start to grow around your island. While this is great for the aesthetic of your island, it can also cause problems if you want to build something in that spot or if the tree is in the way of something else. In this guide, we’ll show you how to cut down trees in Animal Crossing so you can clear them out of the way and make room for whatever else you need on your island.
The first thing you’ll need to do is buy a stone axe from Nook’s Cranny. You can do this by talking to Timmy inside of Nook’s Cranny and selecting the “I want to buy something” option. Once you have your stone axe, head over to the tree that you want to cut down and face it. Press the A button on your Switch to swing your axe and chop down the tree.
How to Remove a Tree Stump
One way to remove a tree stump is by grubbing, which involves excavating around the base of the stump until it can be pulled out. This method works best for small tree stumps that are not too deep in the ground. You will need a grubbing hoe, which is a tool that has short, sharp blades that can be used to loosen the soil.
Another way to remove a tree stump is by amputation, which involves cutting the stump down to ground level and then covering it with soil. This method works best for large tree stumps that are too deep to grub out. You will need a saw and a shovel for this method.
Once you have removed the tree stump, you can then replant the area with grass or another type of plant.
Now that you know how to cut down trees in Animal Crossing, you can start working on clearing out your island however you see fit. Just remember to be careful with your axe and to replant trees once you’ve cut them down, or else you’ll end up with a barren wasteland in no time.
