In Clash of Clans, what do I get for Christmas Tree removal?

In the Christmas Update (v 2.111) of Clash of Clans, several new items were added.  Among them was a randomly spawning Christmas Tree.  Want to know what you get for chopping the tree down? Read on to find out.

Christmas Tree Presents

2014 Christmas Tree Update: Christmas trees in 2014 can spawn presents! Tap presents to open them and get free resources! So far I’ve only seen 5k elixir rewards. Currently we seem to be getting around 2 presents a day, and if left unclaimed they will continue to spawn! If you want presents, don’t cut down your Christmas trees!

Present Spawning: a lot of people have reported that they’ve only got one present under their tree, and no more are spawning! I was in the same boat, but this morning (12/22) I woke up and found 2 new presents under both of my trees! Perhaps present spawning was glitched?

Christmas Tree Removal

Cost:  25,000 gold

Reward: 50,000 gold (ie $75k-$25k = $50k), 5 xp


Note that some folks are reporting only a 30k gold as a reward.  Either SuperCell changed the reward, or it is somewhat variable.  Others have reported crazy gem rewards, but I would not believe such things.  At the end of the day, if you’ve got the 25k and a free builder, you might as well chop it down.  It is unclear whether it will stay around after the next update, so sooner or later you might as well take the profit.

      Hi Mikael, welcome to WOTS! Thanks for posting – I have yet to get a tree this year. Bad luck I suppose. I’ve had various reports that the payout for the new tree was a little higher as you mention, but nothing confirmed of any other prize other than a little more gold. Congrats!

      I can now independently confirm that the reward appears to be unchanged. That is to say – you pay $25k, and you receive $75k, which nets you $50k like I mention in the article. I will clarify the math. Thanks again for the comment.

    Same here, man. Apparently it’s a problem to clashers in a lot of areas – some of us are getting multiple gifts, but a LOT of us are just getting one. Me included.

    I have TWO trees now and each of them only has had ONE gift each. :(

    Plus it’s like 5k elixir, which is nothing to me at this point. WTF :/

      i think that presents respawn every season. I collected my present, but did not cut the tree. guess what? it spawned another present.

      • agent86ix

        I actually logged in yesterday morning and both my 2014 trees had 2 new presents! I think maybe it was glitched before? Or maybe they’re just handing them out funny?

  • Dave

    Really? I have 3 trees and I have about 8 presents under each, not counting the numerous ones I already open before.

    • agent86ix

      Mine just started spawning presents again a couple of days ago. Now I wake up and have 4-5 under each tree every day. But for a good week or so there weren’t any presents under any of my trees…

    one question, how long we can have the three? in the next uptade the xmas three disappears?

    • agent86ix

      Hey Sergio,

      If this is anything like the previous years, you can keep the tree as long as you want. However, it will probably stop spawning presents once the “winter theme” goes away.
