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.
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. The presents seem to spawn until there are 5 of them around each tree. If you want presents, don’t cut down your Christmas trees!
Previous year data is below:
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.
