FarmVille Valentine's Day Trees: Heart Balloon and Smoke Trees now available

The latest FarmVille item update came without trees, which is odd, to say the least (after all, trees are clearly a huge money-maker for Zynga). Now that a few days have passed, four new trees have launched in the store in an update all their own, filling in that gap, and also allowing you to further decorate your farms for the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday.

The four trees come in two pairs. First, the Heart Balloon Tree and Giant Heart Balloon Tree are basically duplicates of the various other balloon trees that have been launched in the game over the years, except their balloons are in the shapes of hearts, rather than being simply rounded. They are priced at 6 and 14 Farm Cash each, respectively.

The other two trees are much more unique, and are modeled after real-world trees. The White Smoke Tree costs 8 Farm Cash, while the Pink Smoke Tree costs 14 Farm Cash. Like the Giant Heart Balloon Tree above, you don't have to purchase the Pink Smoke Tree, even if you'd like one or more in your collection, as they can be earned for free by simply growing Mystery Seedlings in your game. Of course, to help yourself out in that endeavor, it never hurts to have more than one White Smoke Tree sitting around in orchards on your farms.

Either way, both of these pairs of trees will be available in the game for the next 12 days, giving you enough time to place them on your farms and truly enjoy them before the Valentine's Day holiday comes and goes for another year. I'm fairly sure more themed trees will be launched in the store between now and then, and you can be sure we'll bring you their details as well, as soon as we know more.
