FarmVille Tree Groves Notice
The FarmVille Grove debuted on April 24th 2012 and is still rolling out to all farmers. The Grove is a special place to store your Trees and also works with your FarmVille Orchards giving you special rewards. You can still receive Mastery points, Farm Coins, and Mystery Seedlings as well as more Farm Coins/Farm Coconuts!
FarmVille Grove Quick Facts

Constructing your Grove
The Grove can be constructed for free using neighbor help. You will need to collect three different supplies to finish your Grove.

FarmVille Grove Information
How Your Grove Works: What is it for anyways?
What we all really want to know is what is the point of the Grove if we already have Orchard? Let’s break it down. The Grove acts the same as your regular FarmVille Orchards in that it can store up to 20 trees and takes 2 days until the trees are ready to harvest. You can also yield Mystery Seedlings and Water Cans after harvesting your Grove as well as the Farm Coins or Coconuts earned when your harvest its trees. So what else? Groves work with your FarmVille Orchards to give you special bonuses. You can place a regular Orchard on either side of your Grove to receive bonuses. What special bonuses? Continue reading below.
Groves & Orchids Working Together to Increase Your Profit
Every completed Grove has two special areas (one on either side) for you to place your FarmVille Orchards. You can see these special areas as highlighted blue prints that are shown next to completed Groves. Whenever you use the Grove and Orchards together you increase your Mastery Points and Farm Coins/Coconuts each time your harvest! These bonuses include increased Tree Mastery Points by 100% and increased Farm Coin and Coconut yields by 15% for trees housed in the Orchards.
Stacking multiple special areas for your Orchids will increase the percentage bonuses.
The special blue areas can only be applied to Orchards and not on Groves themselves.
Unfortunately, Groves will not give bonuses to Super Orchards. They only work with regular Orchards.
To find out how much your profit will increase, simply hover over your Orchard placed in the Grove’s special area. You will receive a pop-up displaying how many Farm Coins/Coconuts and Mastery points you will receive with your enhanced Orchard.
Bonuses are applied after moving an Orchard into the blue special areas of the Grove and after harvesting the Orchard. If your Orchard is ready-t0-harvest and you place it in the blue area, it will not receive a bonus. Bonuses are not activated until one harvest cycle passes in the Grove’s special area. Bonuses are then applied to the Orchard’s second harvest after placement in the Grove.
Rotating trees in your Orchards placed in Groves will not work because any new tree that you place inside will not receive bonuses until the next harvest time- regardless of the readiness percentage. For example, if you place an Apple Tree that is 20% ready or 99% ready it does not matter, the bonuses will not
be applied until the second harvest in the Orchard-Grove.
Grove I vs. Grove II
There are two types of Groves, but don’t let it confuse you. What is the difference between Grove I and Grove II? Basically the the Groves work exactly the same except for where the placement for the Orchard(s) is allowed. In other words, the special blue areas where you can place Orchards have a different locations for Grove I than Grove II.
Grove I: Grove has a special area for Orchards in ascending order. (Upwards from the Grove.)
Grove II: Grove has special area for Orchards in descending order. (Downwards from the Grove.)
