If you've been busy running around your island, you've probably found a few trees that you want to cut down. Luckily, you can delete them or even move them if you like. In this guide, we will show you how to cut down trees or just dig them up and move them around.

How to chop down a tree in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

To chop down trees, players will need an axe, not to be confused with a flimsy ax or a stone ax (they are needed to get wood from a felled tree). The only tool that cuts trees is a regular axe, which requires 3 wood, 1 iron and 1 stone ax to craft. To get it, players must buy the DIY Pretty Good Tools for 3,000 Nook Miles from the Nook Stop. This can only be done after you return the 5,000 Nook Miles that you owed to Tom Nook for coming to his island.

If you have an ax, by hitting a tree three times with it, it will cut down the tree and only a stump will remain. The stump can be dug up if you want it to disappear. If you'd rather save the tree but get it out of the way, you'll need a shovel. Eat a fruit to get really strong, then use a shovel to dig up a tree. Now you can dig a hole anywhere and plant a tree there again.
