During special times when there are berries growing on bushes, I see why you'd need that ability. But the rest of the time you can still shake everything. I've been shaking stuff for a bit at the beginning but nothing seemed to happen, so I stopped. Is this just a neat mechanic simply for vanity, or does something happen if you shake the right plant or enough times?

Shaking trees will drop a seed if the tree has any that day, or fruit if it is a fruit tree. Similarly, shaking bushes will drop berries if the bush has any that day. Other than that, no, there is no reason to go beat around the bush.

    Shaking trees can be useful early game when energy is at a premium and you usually have a bunch of free time and no energy at the end of a day. Shaking trees doesn't require energy, and it potentially nets seeds which can be made into energy bars allowing you to pack more into your first few days activity.
