Making 'Magical Tree Seeds' appear on top of altar after x many sac, etc'?

And the seeds get planted under a special moon, month, etc....

growing goes faster only under if enough condtions take place...

Anywayz, I thought it was cool, if only i could program it.

Though again, after long thought, it seems too like way too much work to get it done.
Please ignore above post! 

Happy Gaming

This would definitely be hard, another member Buoidda was making a mod in which it had custom flora with trees, and I was helping him draw the tree models. In a post Sami wrote:
Tree modding isn’t truly really possible, and I don’t know if it ever will be. Within the game mechanics and internal structures the trees are handled completely differently than the flora_* plants. Even if those tags would be added, the things generated wouldn’t really be trees for the game.
So there isn't really a way, at least right now, to add a new "real" tree. In the mod Buoidda's Craft, the trees were mostly berries and mushrooms, just very cleverly edited by Buoidda to behave like a tree.

But Night's URW Mod Extender looks very promising, maybe you can request a way to add trees into the game and see if its possible or not, if you come to URW Modding discord channel. There should be a link in the forums somewhere. ;D

I didn't mean true reforestation.
Not as choppable items.
I meant only as eye candy.
Just "a tile with a tree-looking pretty pic" for added immersion.

Sorry for any confusion.

Rocks make everything possible.

Copy the tree graphic, or draw one, into a new file.

Have a recipe that makes a 1,000 lb object if you are holding a rock.
Created object access that tree traffic.

Rocks are great.
