133 - Animal Crossing New Leaf (3DS) - Town Tree

The plaza (often referred to as the events plaza or town tree) is the town centerpiece in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, replacing the plaza outside the Town Hall in previous games. The plaza holds the town tree, which is planted at the beginning of the game by the player who becomes the mayor. This is held by a ceremony that occurs shortly after the town is created.

Events and Attractions

The plaza holds most major events. The Bug-Off and the Fishing Tourney are two regularly occurring events that take place in the plaza. Special events such as New Year's Eve, the Festivale, and the Harvest Festival take place once a year. Redd and Katrina can be found regularly in their corresponding tents, selling art or fortunes. Gracie also stands there for her fashion checks.

When there are no events happening in the town, villagers may gather in the plaza. They usually sit on the wall surrounding the town tree once it's tall enough, or simply talk among themselves in the plaza.

Once the tree has grown to a reasonable size, the player can sit on the wall of the town tree and recap the game's events, such as the establishment of the town and major Public Works projects. It also shows when the current villagers moved into the town, however, it will not recap villagers that have moved out.

Town Tree

Plaza town-tree-no-leaves-november

A stage 4 town tree in late November with only a single leaf hanging on the tree.

During the course of the game, the town tree will grow larger the longer the game is played. The rate of growth is determined by the number of hours and unique days the player has spent playing the game.

Other than the ceremony at the beginning of the game, events do not directly reference the town tree or involve it during the festivities. Villagers will bring up topics about the tree's growth, and will mention it in conversations that are initiated by the player.

The town tree has eight major stages of growth throughout the game.

Notes
1 1/1 Appears as a small tree with a single cluster of leaves.
2 5/5 Appears as a small tree with two clusters of leaves.
3 20/20 Appears as a tree with three clusters of leaves from the front, similar to the non-cedar trees in town.
4 50/50 Appears as a tree with five clusters of leaves from the front. From this stage on, the player will be able to sit on the planter box under the tree to view the town's history. Also, it no longer looks like a tree with brown leaves with a snow cover on them. It loses leaves in fall and gets it back in late February like the other trees. In Welcome amiibo, if the player decides to start a new town at this point, Isabelle will summon Tom Nook, who will offer to buy your old town from you, and the proceeds of the sale will go towards your new town's ABD.
5 100/100 Appears as a larger tree with ten clusters of leaves, with a vine creeping up from the base of the trunk.
6 180/180
7 300/300
8 500/500 Appears as a very large tree with approximately seventeen clusters of leaves. Additional vines also encircle the trunk. The trunk covers the entire planting pot.

From November and all through winter, the town tree will start to lose its leaves gradually. Once spring arrives, the leaves will start growing back on the tree to the stage it was before. During the winter, the trunk will still grow as defined in the above section.

Trivia

  • Face cut-out standees (e.g., from Starcrossed DaySummer Solstice, and Obon), and displays such as Pave's during Festivale vary in size.
  • Any items that are left on the ground and in the way of the cut-outs, booths, etc. will be sent to the Police Station via lost-and-found system after the building is completed. It also removes any custom design placed earlier in that area.
