Getting Bells is just part of life in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and finding new ways to your income growing is a central part of the game. One of the more interesting ways to get Bells is to grow money. On trees.
The Money Tree is an actual thing in the game, and you can have one if you get lucky. When you are exploring your island, keep an eye out for glowing spots on the ground. If you see one, dig there with your shovel, and you will find a bag of money. You will also notice that the hole you just dug is glowing. If you want, you can put some money in the hole, and a few days later a money tree will grow there. You can then harvest the bags of money, but it will only happen once. After you get that cash, the Money Tree becomes a plain old regular tree.
Now, we haven’t been able to grow enough money Trees ourselves to have precise maths, but so far it seems like the Money Tree will give you back three times the amount that you bury. Each bag should contain the same amount Bells that you buried, so burning 1000 Bells will get you 300 Bells in return, which is a fine investment. We would suggest burying as much as you can each time, to maximize profits.
