Neva Lee started this petition to Nintendo

Over the past few months, clever people have found ways to 'glitch' or 'hack' Animal Crossing to create Star Trees. For those who are not aware, Star Trees were similar to Money Trees, but instead of bags of money, you could have three stars of any kind hanging from its branches. Like Money Trees, if you shook a Star Tree you would receive those three stars, and then the tree became a normal tree again. Star Trees became popular not just for their rarity, but also for the bright and colorful aesthetic they added to an island. These trees were so sought after that people would pay large sums of in-game items, such as bells or NookMiles Tickets, or even real money.

On August 5th, 2020, Nintendo released an update that patched the glitch, turning everyone's Star Trees back into Money Trees. Animal Crossing fans have been absolutely devastated by this, even though most surmised the joy could not last. Though it was considered a harmless cheat, it was still an exploitation of a programming loophole nonetheless.

For this petition, I am suggesting  Nintendo bring back the Star Trees as either paid or free in-game content.

I was given a pair of Star Trees by a friend as a thank you for a favor. I fell in love with them instantly and designed a special place on my island to display them. I was deeply saddened upon hearing the news from my friends losing their trees to the update, and I decided to start this petition. I would happily pay for DLC content if Nintendo would be willing to bring them back!

But either free or paid, I feel enough people really want these beautiful trees to be part of the game. Everyone should have a chance to have them, not as a cheat, but for real. They add so much beauty and color, and seeing mine displayed near my house every day gave me so much joy.
