As we told you earlier, the Kissing Tree is a new construction project in FrontierVille that will see you building a kissing tree, and then choosing how to play out the current love triangle between Hank, Bess, and Fanny Wildcat on your homestead. Before you can get to the romance between your chosen couple, however, you'll need to complete a series of three goals - titled simply the Kissing Tree Goals - in order to get to that point in the first place.
The first goal, "Let the Good Vibes Grow," has you building your Kissing Tree and helping a few neighbors out with their crops (this is a time when Victory Gardens will come in mighty handy).
Place the Kissing Tree
Clear Two Thorns
Unwither Ten Neighbor Crops
For all of the details about the new Kissing Tree (which is available to purchase from the store), check out our complete guide. For crops, you'll simply need to head to your neighbors' homestead and unwither any 10 crops you find, regardless of type. Doing this will reward you with 100 XP. You'll be able to share a free Unwither Crops Boost with your friends.
Part II of III, called "A Swing and a Kiss" asks you to complete three more tasks, one of which may very well already be completed for you at the start of the mission, depending on how often you turn in your completed collections.
Feed 20 Sheep
Have or Get One Pillow
Collect 10 Breath Mints from Friends
The Pillow is part of the Inn Collection, and if you already have one on your account, you won't have to earn another one - this step is already completed for you. Breath Mints, meanwhile, can be earned by posting a general request on your news feed. Finishing this second of three Kissing Tree goals will reward you with 50 XP and one Red Rose collectible from the Red Rose crop collection. You'll be able to share 25 Cloth with your neighbors.
Finally, Part III of these new missions will actually see you picking your chosen couple for their romance on your Homestead.
Harvest 30 Red Roses
Move 20 Cows
Select a Couple to Begin a Romance
You'll be able to use your fully built Kissing Tree to select the couple that you would like to have a romance in your game. Again, your choices are Hank and Bess, Hank and Fanny, and Bess and Fanny, and your choice will unlock a different five-part mission series, depending on your choice. Meanwhile all you have to do is move a single Cow 20 times in order to complete that step. Finally, Red Roses can be harvested after 1 day and 12 hours. Finishing this final step will reward you with 50 Reputation Hearts (50 points towards your next Reputation level - not 50 Reputation levels) and one White Rose collectible from the White Rose crop collection. You'll be able to share 10 Reputation Hearts with your friends.
And there you have it - the introductory steps necessary to unlock your chosen couple's romance quest line in your game.
