Trees are often overlooked by players when it comes to Stardew Valley simply because of how expensive they are and how long it takes for them to bear fruit. That said, tree bearing fruit looks beautiful, and the pay off is often worth it in the long run. Keep in mind that saplings cost a lot of money; they can range from 2,000 to even 6,000 gold. If that price seems high to you, then we recommend advancing other parts of your farm because tree farming is very gold-intensive and has a slow return.
But if you can afford a couple of saplings, then you'll need to decide on a spot for them. Keep in mind that if you place an object within any of the 8 adjacent tiles, the tree will stop growing and bearing fruit. Also note that trees do not grow in the winter. The best way to circumvent this issue is to fix up your greenhouse and plant your trees in there. This way your trees will bear fruit year round and take up much less space. Also, the greenhouse has dedicated space for fruit trees, so it looks really pretty when stocked with various fruit trees. We also recommend making items from the fruit, such as jam, because those items sell for a lot more than the fruit.
