Why did some of my fruit trees not grow to the next stage?
In the picture below, I have separated my trees with 2 horizontal spaces and 1 vertical space from the next tree. They are all non-native trees and were planted on the same day. (The holes are for spatial reference and were not there while the trees were left for one night)
Why did the trees in the middle region not grow? The trees on the edges advanced to the next growth stage while those in the middle of the plantation pattern did not. Is there a probability where they fail to advance? Or is there a maximum number of plants that will advance to the next stage in a day? (Because I did plant a whole lot of trees and maybe I exceeded some maximum number?)
If there at 12 or more other trees (stunted, growing, or fully grown) in the 9x9 grid surrounding the tree, the tree will not grow.
To get your trees to grow properly you need to space them out more.
Alternately you can grow them elsewhere and then move them into this pattern. Trees won't grow this packed together, but if placed fully grown into this configuration they will still produce fruit, wood, and other tree resources.

Why are some of my trees not growing ACNH?Trees won't grow if you plant them too close to each other. You'll need two spaces in between trees to ensure they grow properly. If you want to grow more than two trees in a row, you'll need four spaces between the second and third tree.
What causes fruit not to grow?The absence of pollinators or low numbers of female flowers can result in fewer fruits produced. Poor Pollination: This is one of the most common causes of no fruit. Some plants cannot pollinate themselves. They require a plant of the same species, but a different variety for cross-pollination and maximum fruit set.
How do you increase the growth of fruit trees?Increase the fertilizer application as the tree ages to continuously boost growth. In the fruit tree's second year, use one pound of 21-0-0 fertilizer. In the third year, use 1.5 pounds of the same fertilizer. Every year thereafter, increase the amount of fertilizer you use by a pound.
What causes slow tree growth?Some trees tolerate full sun while others tolerate heavy shade. Some trees tolerate hot temperatures while others tolerate cold temperatures. So first and foremost, if the tree you planted is not tolerant of the environment where it is planted, then this is likely a reason for slow growth.

It's not just the spacing you have to worry about, the trees in the middle section aren't growing because of an issue where they're not getting enough sunlight. New Leaf also had this quirk. Move the trees to a different area and plant only one row at a time to avoid this.
