How To Gather Acorns

Shake Trees & Pick Up Acorns That Fall Out

Picking up Acorns

↑ Picking up an Acorn off the ground!!

Acorns will fall out of trees when you shake them! Note that this only occurs in Fall. In the Northern Hemisphere, this will be from September 1st to December 11th, and in the Southern Hemisphere this is from March 1st to June 11th. Their drop rate seems to be rather low, so have patience when going after them.

Acorns Only Drop From Deciduous Trees

Note that acorns will only drop from deciduous (broadleaf) trees! If you shake a coniferous (pine) tree, you'll get a Pinecone instead, so be careful!

Check Out How To Get Pinecones here.

You can get them from Cornimer on Harv’s plaza(fall only)

Also, don't be afraid of the aggressive multi-shake. Most trees will give up four of five things, granted I have a ridiculous number of branches, but it's also the best way of getting acorns and pine cones.

Those of you running from wasps: hold your net, stand in front of the trees, and shake. It will turn you to the wasp when it falls, and you can tap A and catch the wasp. Easy peasy.

You don't need to outrun the wasps - always hold a net when you're shaking, then you can catch the wasps.

Tip: When shaking trees and wasps start to come after you, run to your museum. They will not be able to attack you once you’re in
