    I'm trying to plant trees in the area below my farm,
    Where Leah and Shane/Jas/Marine live

    It keeps saying invalid position,
    I'm in the beta if that helps.

    I know if you hoe the ground you can plant a tree,
    But is there a way to plant on the grass spots?

      Perhaps in Winter? I've never personally tried myself.

        Oh~! That sounds like it could work!
        I'm in spring so I'll try it eventually :D !

          Worms can show up on grass, and if you use a hoe on them, you get a dig spot (plus whatever the worms were concealing), which you then presumably can plant a tree on. Kind of exploit-ish, and heavily RNG dependent, but there you go.

          Honestly not sure why you'd want to plant trees down there. It's a fairly high traffic area, so the odds that the sapling would get trampled is pretty high. If you insist on an orchard outside the farm area, try re-purposing the Quarry.

            Eh that'll work if it is in a helpful spot xD
            Thanks for that

            Haven't unlocked the quarry yet,
            And I'm not putting fruit trees down there, just regular trees :D

            I use a lot of wood and I'm in constant need of more
            so I don't want to overrun my farm with trees everywhere
            I'm resulting to the lower levels of the forest area :D

              I've been wondering if there's a Dig Anywhere mod. That would help, but, I haven't found one.

              I am currently using the area where spring onions grow for my trees. I'm trying to farm a ton of syrup and resin for bee boxes and kegs. ( get 33 resin and 28 maple syrup per harvest)

              I recommend using the
              -spring onion area (I don't find the onions useful after the first spring)
              -There is dirt all around the edge of the river, plant trees there (warning if you plan on cutting them down, no guarantee they won't tip over and all your wood gets lost to the river.
              -The dirt patch by Marnie's farm, the top right corner doesn't get traffic, I have two trees up there, all my trees are synced up, so If those ones have syrup and resin available, I know the rest do too.

              Other places
              -North of the railway, especially on the left, nobody goes there, you can plant dozens up there
              -In front of the adventurers guild
              -Desert is PERFECT if you've unlocked it yet.

                I completely forgot about the railway area!
                Thanks a fantastic idea!

                Also haven't unlocked the desert yet,
                You can plant trees there? I can't wait for that!

                I doubt I'll find one either but if I see a mod like that I'll message you :)

                  The southern end of the forest (by the sewer gate) has dirt patches that spring onions grow in. That dirt is tillable - I have gobs of trees planted there.

                  Right around Robin and Marnie, you can only plant tree seeds in winter when you dig up wormies. On the beach too. Just know that if an NPC walks thru the tree, it'll disappear.

                    Wood sells for 10g from Robin in your first year. Just buy a stack or two if you are hurting for wood.
