In-Game Update: World’s Largest Redwood (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A little in-game update has hit our tapping devices…

2016-02-17 19.50.12

This is kinda like “busy work” for TSTO.  No real prizes (ok 1 prize…tree hugger Lisa)…basically it’s like Money Mountain…upgrade, upgrade, upgrade.  More details coming…

Bart kicks things off…you’ll also need Lisa free for the first task. (And Milhouse and Lisa for the second part…)

Note: if you’re not at Level 35, you won’t see this.  Once you hit level 35 it’ll start for you.. (yes even if you hit Level 35 in 3 weeks…this isn’t time)

After you place the Redwood Tree (free) and have Lisa do her 6s task, you’ll start the Redwood upgrading process….

2016-02-17 19.53.39

First…and more important, this is NOT timed.  So take your time.  Set it to the side, there’s no rush on it.

Basically, like Money Mountain, complete tasks to upgrade the tree.  Unlike money mountain, this won’t cost you $$ (at least not yet, that I can see)…just time and tasks.  Update: Once you reach part 2 it’ll cost you Money.  Details below..

So it’s basically a combination of Money Mountain and Valentine’s Day…

Sorry it took so long to get back to this…rough afternoon.  But here are the rest of the Redwood Details..

So as mentioned above once you place the tree and complete the 6s task with Lisa you’ll unlock the upgrade ability on the Redwood Tree.  As events in the past, the more you upgrade the bigger the, in this case, tree gets.  You’ll have to complete tasks to upgrade.  Here’s a rundown of who/what/how long you’ll need for each level:

unlock_jessegrassAt this point, if you don’t have him, you’ll unlock the ability to purchase Jesse Grass for donuts.  You can check out the Should I Buy on him here.  1 addendum to this…Jesse is a VERY beneficial buy for this particular “event” (it’s not really an event because it’s not timed, but you know what i mean..).  If you’re thinking about getting him, do it.  It’ll come in handy for these tasks…

Tree-hugger Lisa will come with a questline (we’ll cover that in another post) and a full set of tasks.  Now I know there were a bunch of questions about her tasks…she earns at a regular rate.  So no bonus premium character with this one.

woodchipperWood-Chipper- $5.600.  Unlocks for purchase in the store after you’ve unlocked Tree-Hugger Lisa.

And there you have it my friends, the complete rundown on the Redwood Tree update!

  1. I finished the redwood quest line and was pretty bummed to see tree-hugging Lisa earning at a regular rate. After dumping all that money into the quest, I expected a better return (kind of similar to Burns and money mountain).

  2. I prefer level 9 redwood rather than level 10. I find it more attractive.

  3. So…what is “Lisa’s 11?” Is that a side-quest to the lisa treehugger? I can’t find that quest own the site. Thankew!

  5. Everytime I press my redwood tree it says requirements not met and it takes my money…I am on level 4, it also will not let me select Jesse Grass, only Mayor Quimby…I have met all requirements; I’m level 58…is it a bug? How can I fix this?!

  6. I’m stuck on part 7, have 230 of the 240 fertilizers and can’t assign Snake or Lisa ( or anyone else ). I put a ticket in with EA and they said to make sure my software is update and delete and reinstall the game. Did it but didn’t fix the problem. Trying to deal with EA is like talking to a brick wall. Any ideas?? Thanks fellow tappers.

    • So now EA had me log into my town on another device, visit a friend and do the three taps, then logout from the friend handshake screen. Still didn’t fix. Back to them again. Su Noname

      • Just an update that my Redwood is still frozen. EA does not know what the issue is or how to fix it. Anyone else still having this problem? Or has something worked and fixed the glitch for you? Thank you everyone, happy tapping.

  7. Is there a trick to advance in level except spending donuts if you cannot send characters on tasks? For some strange teason I have too much fertiliser, so all my characters cannot do their task, but I must still collect fertiliser… So basically I am supposed to collect 240, but I already have 460…

  8. Yep, glitching for me too. I now can’t assign anyone to get fertiliser. Seems to be since the casino updates.
