How to Grow a Mahogany Tree in Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley Mahogany Tree

There are many trees in Stardew Valley, but one of the most popular in the game is the superior Mahogany Tree. It’s a rather common tree that falls along the others that naturally grow in the Valley. With its potential properties, players will be able to accomplish so much more than with just regular wood.

Stardew Valley Mahogany Tree

The main question is, how do you grow one? Locating Maple, Oak, Palm, and Pine Trees is another story — it’s the Mahogany type that we’re interested in, since it can produce both Hardwood and Sap. Evidently, these are highly valuable resources that are used in a variety of recipes. Therefore, this guide will dig into what needs to be done to find and grow a Mahogany Tree in Stardew Valley.

How to Get a Mahogany Seed

The Mahogany Tree is grown from a Mahogany Seed during every season, which can be gained in a few different ways. You can get them by using an Axe or Pickaxe to dig up dropped seeds underneath fully grown trees, chopping away Large Stump and Logs, or killing Slimes in the Secret Woods. You can also get more seeds by either shaking or chopping down a tree, as well as purchasing them from the Island Trader for one Stingray.

Additionally, there’s always a chance that a Golden Coconut could yield a Mahogany Seed as well. Of course, this happens at random whenever you break one open, so consider this option to be the last resort.

From there, you can take your newly-acquired Mahogany Seeds back to the farm to start some work. If you’re already accustomed to growing both standard and Fruit Trees in the Valley, you’ll be fairly comfortable with the beneficial Mahogany kind.

The 5 Stages of Mahogany Tree Growth

You'll need to wait through five growth stages for your Mahogany Tree to reach maturity.

The tree in question has five stages of growth and grows at the same rate as the other trees in the game. Additionally, it can be enhanced by using Tree Fertilizer. Once a seed is fertilized, it will grant you a 60% chance of growing to the next stage. This is compared to seeds that are unfertilized, as they have only a 15% chance of growing to the next stage.

Once you’ve fully grown a Mahogany Tree, you can produce one Sap every day when you use a Tapper per tree. They can also be chopped down with an axe if you are in desperate need of some Hardwood. Players can possibly obtain 8-13 pieces of Hardwood after the chopping comes to a close.

Expert Tip

Stock up on food items and other healthy items that can provide a boost in your Energy. If you’re looking to farm Hardwood with some Sap, stay vigilant of your character’s stamina as they continue to collect resources from chopping away trees.

If you want to use the Mahogany Seeds for something else other than a tree, then you can craft clothing. You can do this by using it in the spool of a Sewing Machine, by doing this you will create the beanie that can be worn by your character. Additionally, it can be served as an orange dye to use at the appropriate dye pots in Pelican Town at 2 Willow Lane.
