Synopsis []

Dan Halen's foolish new plan prompts Early to open a foolish new business.


Dan Halen wants to beautify Dougal County in an attempt to attract more tourists. To do this, Dan hires a service that downloads chemicals in a way that makes it look like it's always autumn, which should appeal to the city dwellers. Initially his plan works and the Cuyler family is everywhere in an attempt to make a profit. However, the chemicals used to transform trees are actually poisonous, thus killing all wildlife and transforming trees into suicidal Ent. Some Ent take control of the city and force Halen to open a "gravy museum" so that people come to the city to make a profit and satiate the smaller trees.
