I started the game after the nature day event. Leif gifted me the hedge diy today.

How do I unlock hedge diy if I started the game AFTER nature day?? There are no nature day "miles" tasks, and no letter from nook. HELP?

Hi. Did you try moving a fully grown tree? If you eat a fruit you can use the shovel tool to move any fully grown tree.

Any idea how to complete the Nature Day activity of Tree Transplantation? I have planted new trees, moves a new sapling, moved a young sapling, but neither of those counted.
