Animal Crossing New Horizons Cherry Blossom Trees – How to Get?

To get Cherry Blossom Trees in ACNH, you have to make sure that you have some hardwood trees on your island. Do not, I repeat, do not cut down all the hardwood trees on your island. Keep some of them and put them someplace nice, like your property or the plaza or wherever, if you really have to move them around. Yes, the hardwood trees seem like they’re there just to be cut down for resources, since they don’t bear fruit or anything, but they’re not. Here’s what I mean.

Seasons in Animal Crossing New Horizons last for three months, depending on your real-life time. Spring happens in March, April and May in the northern hemisphere. Cherry Blossom season is in April in the north; in the southern hemisphere, I assume that it’s gonna be October, but don’t quote me on this. Either way, once the Cherry Blossom season rolls around, you’re going to start seeing some of those hardwood trees that you’ve spared the axe explode in lovely, pink flowers.

In fact, some of you in the northern hemisphere might be noticing the hardwood trees changing color slightly. So, yeah; make sure to not cut down all the hardwood trees, or you’ll miss the beauty of cherry blossom season. In case you need help with anything else in the game, check out our long list of other Animal Crossing New Horizons guides. To name just a few, we’ve got Stringfish Appearance Time – How to Catch, How to Chop Down Trees, and Hybrid Flowers.

    Wow. Useful. I had swapped all my hardwood trees into fires so I recommend not doing that. But if u want trees quicker I ate fruit and then used a Nook Miles ticket and then dug up a tree.
