# Will less trees mean a higher chance for bugs to spawn on the given trees?

In Animal Crossing New Leaf, on my Tropical Island, I have many trees that are out of the way and hard to use properly. I plan on removing them, but, when I do, will there be a higher chance for bugs to spawn on the trees that are there, or, will the chance decrease due to less trees?

This might not be exactly what you're looking for, but at the very least it'll help.

### There is a maximum number of spawns that can exist in your town. (There's a minimum too, but that isn't important here.)

Spawns are actual bugs and fish in your town. Bugs and fish are both counted towards your total spawns. In other words, there is no separate counter for bugs or fish. They are counted together towards the maximum spawn limit.

### Scaring (or catching) bugs and fish away will allow you to find higher worth bugs and fish quicker, however this does not change the expensive bugs and fish's spawn percentage.

Say you have three trees on your island and four insects can be found: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Super Rare. If the common insect has a spawn percentage of 80%, the uncommon one has a spawn percentage of 50%, the rare one has a spawn percentage of 30% and the Super Rare has a spawn percentage of 15%, you'll still see more of the common one over the uncommon one, regardless of how many trees are on the island (same goes for the other types).

### Having more trees is helpful... if you're using them well.

What I've told you so far is...

1. Insects and fish spawns count towards a spawn maximum.
2. The spawn rate for spawned creatures does not change.

So that leads to the last question: If there are fewer trees, will there be a higher chance of insects spawning on those trees?
