In Animal Crossing a couple different trees per day will have a random furniture item (makes sense, right?). However searching all trees in my current town is a pain as they're spread far and wide.

If I were to cull the majority of non-fruit trees in favor of fruit trees and a small, condensed patch of normal trees, will furniture always spawn in the small group? Will I get less furniture this way or are there other reasons I should avoid this strategy?

Ideally you want 17 regular trees in town to maximize harvesting of bells and furniture.

10 will have bells. 5 usually have bees. 2 will have furniture. If you have fewer than 17 the spawn balance is out of whack.

There is no issue with planting an easily-shaken cluster of trees. I would suggest making sure they are planted in a way that will allow them to grow.

Are there any spacing rules for trees?

This is a great guide on how to (and how not to) plant.
