Should I Spend Donuts on the Treestache’s Grove?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Season Premiere season is here!  And it’s time for our favorite yellow family to return to the small screen!  Woohoo!  After 4 months off…the wait is almost over…The Simpsons Season 29 Premiere airs this Sunday!  And of course to celebrate (and get us hyped up) EA dropped a little Season Premiere Episode tie-in in our games. And of course, that means…new premium content in our stores tempting us to spend our sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Treestache’s Grove to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Tree’s Lair to your town…

Building/Decoration: Treestache’s Grove
Character: Treestache
Donut Cost: 60 Donuts
Earns: 1% Bonus on all cash and XP
Tree-Hugging +200
Where Can I Place It?: grass|pavement|dirt|beach

Leaves stores October 2nd

-Comes with the Treestache Character (only item in the Serfsons character collection)
-Comes with a short 2 part questline for Homer
-Treestache is animated when tapped
-Treestache’s Grove is always animated (birds fly around)

-Treestache is an NPC (although some of you may see that as a pro)
-Bonus % isn’t great for donuts spent (Although it’s a decoration +NPC)

Final Thought
It’s not bad.  If you like it, pick it up.  Reasonably priced for NPC + decoration.  So if you like it grab it, otherwise pass.

It’s a fun item, for sure, but if you’re low on donuts this may be something you want to hold off on it.  At the end of the day, it’s just a decoration and NPC.  Usually, full character/buildings take higher priority for freemium donuts.  Plus Halloween is coming….

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as I premium player I can tell you I’ll likely pass on this one. Not a huge fan.  But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now). 

Here’s what the Treestache looks like when you tap on him:

  1. I just bought him and can’t enchant or capture him. Also I can no longer open the event menu; I think there is some kind of glitch 😦 Hope they will fix it soon.


    • I have the same problem. Wish I hadn’t bought treestache. My event menu won’t work any more


      • Seems to be broken right now. Enchant/Capture menu won’t open after placing, mine came back after sending all characters on 4 hour jobs, but Treestache disappeared from enchant/capture choices (only 6 characters available). Treestache not doing a job, of course, as NPC.


    • I have the same problem too – what a waste of 60 donuts. Is there a fix available?

      Whilst not getting something that you’ve paid for is annoying, losing the event menu is much worse!! I don’t fancy doing a re-install as the 1GB of updates that take an hour, and only when you have wi-if is equally annoying!!


  2. Can you post images of the decorations Treestash unlocks after he has been enchanted? That would really help me decide if I want to purchase him or not.


    • I’ve said it a few times, including on the decorations post…he unlocks trees and shrubs you can purchase for in-game cash all the time in your store. I wouldn’t spend the donuts on him for his decorations.


    • you can also sell his decorations who gives xp when placed there is 3 differents trees 1 shrubs and 1 small island all for tree hugging : )


  3. Treestache is no longer an enchantable beast, what gives? Is this a glitch?


    • That’s weird. I just Released him under an hour ago. Odd that they would cancel his Capturing and Enchanting ability, when some of us can still Release him.


  4. It says treestache unlocks new decorations. Are they the same one unlocked by Wiggpops, does anyone know?


  5. Also, he now is a monster to capture for the THOH 2017!


  6. Treestache shows up in the Town Census! Maybe he will get some jobs AFTER the show airs!
