Thank you for the replies about farmers I had just been on my way here to reply that I learned as much – thanks both for taking the time to let me know. Google hadn’t been kind but my searches were not down the farming path either. And I think my farmers only got to level four before I folded on the last game due to city planning failures.
I did see a post referencing ‘how to keep trees small’ just wasn’t sure if that applied to in-world trees that were there at spawn, do they grow over time or always stay small etc.
I guess it’s off to leveling a farmer to see how much control we get over how planting saplings work! Very glad to learn that it’s an existing class by the way, happy not to have to have another class to manage for forestry work.
