The Hoe is one of the essential tools in Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility.

The primary use for the hoe is to till land in order to plant crops and trees. It is given to the player at the start of the game automatically.

You can charge up the hoe's power by holding down the A button. As the hoe is upgraded, you are able to till more at a time and use less stamina.
