Rows cross so each tree is in two rows. One tree is planted at each point (convex vertice) of star. One tree is planted at each crotch (concave vertice) of star. A row of 4 includes two trees at adjacent crotches and those on the points in line with them.

Very easy, but not a bad one. You need to mislead people, otherwise it becomes like "What is another name for the sun?" - it took me a whole five seconds, so really - mislead them to water
