Tree Stump Guide

When you chop down a tree, the usual pattern on the stump is a bulls-eye. However, sometimes the tree stump will have an unusual pattern on it. If this happens, mushrooms can grow around the tree stump. Some mushrooms are very valuable.

Finding Unusual Stump Patterns

To find unusual patterns on tree stumps, simply chop down trees. The bulls-eye pattern is the most common pattern. Anything other than the bulls-eye pattern is special. Mushrooms can grow around special tree stumps year round.

Finding Bugs

Two types of bugs can only be found on tree stumps: the Longhorn beetle and the Violin beetle. To catch those bugs, make sure you have a tree stump somewhere in your town. Check the list of bugs, fish, and deep sea creatures for more information about these bugs.
