FarmVille Tree of Life: Everything you need to know


While FarmVille players can spend just as much time harvesting trees and animals as they can actual crops, there are still plenty of farmers that go after every crop mastery sign available. If you're one of those players, you'll need to start working on the new Tree of Life feature that has started rolling out to our farms, as it offers seeds to a crop that can't be found anywhere else.

The Tree of Life can be placed by clicking on the pop-up asking you to do so. If you don't wish to place it on your current farm, it will go into your Gift Box where it can be pulled out later. Once it's placed, you'll need to start on the initial building stage of the Tree, which requires six Life Essence and six Magic Bubble items, along with nine Puffy Clouds. The Life Essence and Magic Bubbles can be earned by posting general requests on your news feed, asking all friends to help at once, while the Puffy Clouds can be earned by sending out individual requests to your neighbors.

After completing just this first stage, you'll receive Floating Flower seeds once per day when you harvest your Tree of Life. If you want more seeds, you can continue upgrading the Tree of Life with more building collectibles until it eventually reaches Level 6. Here's a complete breakdown of each stage's requirements, thanks to Zynga.

  • 6 Magic Bubbles

  • 9 Puffy Clouds

At any time, you can pay Farm Cash to purchase items if you're tired of waiting on your friends to help you out, but either way, this item will become useless after you've gathered all of the seeds you need from it. That being the case, don't worry about building it to Stage 6 as fast as you can, since there's no extra prize for doing so, on top of simply getting more seeds with each harvest. We'll make sure to let you know if this tree becomes a source of additional seeds in the future, so stay tuned!
