Trees vs plants
If I understand correctly, trees give you less food, less often but will not wither?
At the moment, I already have over 10,000 food, 20ish crops and maybe 20 or so animals. At this point, I have to feed the animals a few times before I can harvest. I suppose I should be using any more expansion space for trees rather than crops (besides animals, of course).
plants do produce more food than trees. Trees range from 25-35x food. And they don't wither. it would take a while if you would plant trees.
