A graph of multiple examples of stump patterns.

Tree Stump Patterns

Every stump pattern in the game. The Sun pattern and the Ring pattern are the normal stump patterns.

Special stump patterns are a feature that occurs in New Leaf. When a tree is cut down with an axe, the resulting stump has a chance of having a special stump pattern appearing on it instead of the regular circular pattern. Cutting down the tree with a normal axe has a rare chance, while the silver axe almost always produces one with a special pattern. The gold axe sometimes produces these special patterns, but not as often as the silver axe. There are a total of 12 special patterns with the regular (oak) and cedar trees have 6 each.

Mushrooms grow near special stumps at all times of the year -- something that lazy villagers will often point out.
