As suggested here, another garden helper. This global hack reduces the time needed for harvesting trees and plants to about 60%. It is possible to further reduce the time by removing some animations, but that doesn't really look good in the game. If this is requested though, I'll gladly offer a second hack.

To check the actual times with and without the hack, have a look at the six screenshots. #1 to #3 show the hack, #4 to #6 the usual time needed.

This hack requires EP5 - SEASONS
