How To Plant Money Trees in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

There are many different ways to earn money in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Money trees are one of the best ways you can do this to consistently earn Bells. This guide will walk you through how to plant money trees in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

How To Plant Money Trees

Step 1 – Find Glowing Ground

As you explore your island, you will come across little glowing patches of ground. If you use your shovel, you can dig up a bag of Bells from this glowing areas. Doing this will grant you a bag of 1,000 Bells.

Step 2 – Bury Bells

In the same location, switch to your Bells and select 10,000 Bells. This will make an icon for a bag of 10,000 Bells in your pockets. Now, go back to your pockets and select the 10,000 Bells and choose to Bury it in the hole we just dug up.

Step 3 – Wait

Next, we have to wait a few days for our Money Tree to sprout out of the ground and grow to full size. It takes about four days from the time you plant your tree until you are able to harvest the Bells from it.

Step 4 – Harvest Bells

Now we can harvest the bags of Bells from our Money Tree. In this example, 62,970 Bells were harvested from our initial 10,000 Bell investment. As you can see, this is a great way to generate some Bells on a daily basis.

Remember, this only works when you dig up the glowing spots on the ground and bury the Bells there. It seems that 10,000 Bells is a good number to bury because it always works and always gives a nice return on investment.

You can find one glowing spot on your island every day, so be sure to add this to your daily tasks. Check out our other guide for daily tasks to keep you busy in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
