Animal Crossing is an open-ended video game series. As such, players have no defined objectives.
In this game your human character is living in a rural village with anthropomorphic animals. You will need tools to carry out various tasks. Axes are among those tools. If you are wondering how to get an axe in animal crossing, don’t worry. You will learn how to get an axe in animal crossing and all you need to know about axes.
How to use an axe in Animal Crossing
As mentioned above, axes are tools in the Animal Crossing series. Primarily, they are used for cutting down trees in the player’s town. Striking a tree with an axe causes any object (like fruits, beehives etc.) on the tree to fall. The tree then falls after the third strike.
After cutting down a tree, a stump remains. So, if you want to completely remove the tree, you will have to dig it out using a shovel.

An axe can be used in place of a shovel, i.e., for hiting rocks to find insects, bells and ore easily. Furthermore, axes are also essential for crafting; to chop wood.
However, axes do degrade. During the initial stages, cracks start to appear and become larger with time until the axe finally breaks. Axes used after Dōbutsu no Mori can only be used a limited number of times before shattering.
