In this guide I’ll help you improve your Logging and Gathering proficiency using the Sapling Merchants. Sapling Merchants sell a vast array of saplings for Logging and Gathering. Down below I’ll have a chart covering all the important details of each sapling: cost, growth and harvest time, climate, and profession.

Utilizing Climates:

Each sapling has a preferred climate, planting the sapling in the preferred climate decreases the overall growth time of the plant. The only place I’ve experimented with climate testing is Lilyut Hills. Through several tests I’ve confirmed that the climate there is temperate. This means trees like Apple which generally have a 14 hour 18 minute growth time, have a reduced growth time within this region.

Saplings in the Sapling Merchant’s store fall into one of the following categories: temperate, arid, tropical, or all. All means there is no decreased growth time in any climate. Poplar does not have a listed climate preference, but works the same as if it were categorized as All. Remember to make a test of the climate before you buy in bulk.

 

Utilizing Growth and Harvest Time:

Growth time helps you plan when you need to return to your garden to chop down trees. Harvest time allows you to schedule when you need to gather from your trees. I recommend filling your garden with plants that will all mature at the same time with a similar harvest time to get the most out of your garden. Doing this will decrease the amount of trips you must make to your garden.

Profession Priorities:

Whether you’re gardening to stock your material supplies, or to skill up Logging or Gathering, priorities are important. If Logging is your focus, plant non-harvestable trees such as Aspen or Maple. If Gathering is your priority focus on fruit bearing trees such as Ash or Cherry.

Additional Notes:
  • Not all trees fit in a small garden.
  • Not all trees can be purchased from a merchant. Sequoia and Thuja specifically can’t be purchased, there are likely others as well.
  • Trees take up significant space in your garden, plan accordingly.

I hope this guide helps you optimize your garden usage. For more, check out my ArcheAge guide directory.
