Stardew Valley: How to Grow Mahogany Trees

In the virtual farming universe of Stardew Valley, trees hold great value as precious natural resources, enabling the acquisition of various products such as wood, oak resin, maple syrup, tar, and tree sap, all of which can be utilized for construction and crafting purposes. Whether players are just starting out or already seasoned, trees are indispensable throughout every stage in Stardew Valley.

Common trees in Stardew Valley include oak, pine, maple, and mahogany trees. Some of them, such as oak and maple trees, are readily available in many locations throughout Stardew Valley and naturally appear on players' farms from the beginning. Mahogany trees were introduced in the Stardew Valley 1.5 update and thrive abundantly on Ginger Island, but they are somewhat more challenging to cultivate on the player's own farm.

How to Get Mahogany Seeds

The constant back and forth travel to Ginger Island may seem tedious, which is why it is advantageous for players to plant their own mahogany trees, ensuring a convenient supply of hardwood and tree sap. These seeds distinguish themselves from other trees and saplings with their distinct orange-yellow color and elongated shape.

Acquiring mahogany seeds in the game is a straightforward process, provided that players approach it in the correct manner. Here are five different ways in which players can find mahogany seeds in Stardew Valley.

From Fully-Matured Mahogany Trees

Mahogany trees can be found in the northern area of the beach on Ginger Island and to the west of the island's farmhouse. These trees can be cut down and used to plant mahogany trees on the player's own farm. By felling or shaking fully grown mahogany trees, players have the opportunity to collect mahogany seeds. This is the best way to obtain mahogany seeds.

Additionally, mature mahogany trees will scatter their seeds around them. Players have the option to partially unearth mahogany seeds using their axe or pickaxe.

By Chopping Large Stumps

Tree stumps are the remnants left behind after cutting down a fully grown tree. They can be found on the farm, in the Secret Woods, or in the mines. In the Secret Woods, six tree stumps naturally regenerate daily. Players can use a copper axe or a better axe to fell large tree stumps.

Cutting down tree stumps has a 10% chance of yielding mahogany seeds and provides 2 pieces of hardwood.

By Defeating Slimes

The Secret Woods is filled with slime puddles that provide players with opportunities to engage in combat and defeat these small monsters. Once defeated, slimes drop a variety of items. Similar to tree stumps, slimes reappear in the Secret Woods every day in Stardew Valley.

Slimes have a 10% chance of dropping mahogany seeds.

By Cracking Golden Coconuts

Golden coconuts are rare geode-like items found on Ginger Island. They are typically filled with seeds. Players can collect them and bring them to Clint, who can crack them open for a fee of 25g.

Golden coconuts have a one in seven chance of containing mahogany seeds.

From the Island Trader

For those who do not wish to invest time in collecting seeds in Stardew Valley, an alternative option is to purchase mahogany seeds from the Island Trader on Ginger Island. These seeds can be acquired in exchange for a stingray from the trader.

However, it should be noted that this unique trader may not be immediately accessible upon arrival on Ginger Island. Players must first unlock the farmhouse on the island, which costs 20 Golden Walnuts, and the Island Trader, for which an additional 10 Golden Walnuts are required.

Players are advised to collect mahogany seeds instead of buying them, as it is a simpler and more effective way to obtain the seeds.

How to Grow Mahogany Trees

Once players have found and collected mahogany seeds, the next step is to plant them. Mahogany trees have 5 stages of growth. Unlike many other trees in Stardew Valley, they grow independently of the seasons and do not require frequent watering.

However, their growth rate can vary slightly. Planting mahogany trees with non-fertilized seeds may take some time. To expedite the process, players can use tree fertilizer. This fertilizer gives mahogany trees a 60% chance of advancing to the next stage of growth every night, compared to the meager 15% chance without fertilizer. While non-fertilized mahogany trees take approximately 26±12 days to reach maturity, trees treated with fertilizer can reach full maturity in just 7±2 days.

Advantages of Mahogany Trees in Stardew Valley

In the world of Stardew Valley, hardwood is a valuable resource that can be difficult to obtain. When a mature mahogany tree (Stage 5) is cut down, it yields 8 to 13 pieces of hardwood.

Additionally, these trees can be tapped with a regular or heavy tapper to extract valuable tree sap. Tree sap plays an important role in various crafting recipes to make fertilizer, torches, and different types of bait for fishing.

Given the rarity and usefulness of these two resources, the effort of finding mahogany tree seeds and cultivating them is undeniably worthwhile.

Stardew Valley is now available for mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
