Stumps (also known as Tree Stumps) are a type of flora in the Animal Crossing series. They first appear in Animal Forest. They do not occur naturally, but appear when a player has cut down a tree using an axe.

Creation

To create a stump, the player must first obtain an axe. A regular axe can be bought from Tom Nook's store or a Nookling store for 400 Bells. In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the regular axe can be purchased from Lief's gardening store. Once obtained, the player must equip the axe and stand facing the tree when using the action button to swing the axe. After three swings, the tree will split revealing a tree stump.

Use

In Animal Crossing: Wild World

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, tree stumps had very few uses other than for decorative purposes. It wasn't until later games that they developed a purpose.

In Animal Crossing: City Folk

In Animal Crossing: City Folk, stumps became the only way of finding and catching Violin and Longhorn Beetles, which can be found sitting on top of tree stumps. Previous to City Folk, they could only be found on tree trunks with other beetles.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, tree stumps were changed further. With the new ability of adding town features such as benches, tree stumps gained the ability of being used as seating.

In addition, players also gained the ability of being able to find Special Stump Patterns when they have cut down a tree using an axe. The chances of finding stump patterns is increased when using either a silver or golden axe. In total, there are 12 patterns - 6 from cedar trees and 6 from fruit and non-fruit bearing trees.

Removal

Tree stumps can be removed by using a shovel when standing next to and aiming at the stump using the action button. The player will push the shovel underneath the stump and pull upwards, throwing the stump to one side where it will disappear. A hole will be left, which can be filled in with the shovel or by placing an item in place, such as a sapling.
