2 Orange Trees Dead

Please see screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/HtRgx0B.jpg

Can anyone help me figure out why trees can't grow when planted on those 2 spots? As you can see in the screenshot, there's nothing wrong with the spacing of the trees. Might be a weird game bug.

in City Folk you could only have x amount of trees in an acre, maybe that is true for new leaf also?

I see, this is only my 2nd Animal Crossing game and not really familiar with acres. Kinda weird though that it seems like it's not explained in the game at all and had to be googled.

Did you make sure they weren't in the shade of a building?

I think only 9(?) trees can grown any 7x7 square in your town

they were in a checkered pattern in open ground

you would think since the game came out a while ago that there would have been a basic grid for planting so you dont waste trees in an acre

I figured I was trampling my trees by accident. I planted a tree in the same spot 3 days in a row and it died every time, but i guess this is why. Now i'm putting public works projects in their place :)

When you are planting a grove of trees, plant in rows of two at first, like this:

x x
x x
x x

When they mature past sapling, plant another row, but not another two rows.

X X x
X X x
X X x

Reason is because a sapling will not grow if it is completely surrounded by other trees, even with the correct spacing. Just do the one row at a time after the initial two rows.
