Quest table

Woodcutting is a popular skill in Old School RuneScape that involves cutting down trees to obtain logs, which can be used for various purposes like firemaking, fletching, construction, and more. In this guide, I'll provide a comprehensive 1-99 Woodcutting guide, including the best training methods and locations for each level range. Note that the guide assumes you have completed the tutorial and have access to the necessary areas. Let's get started!


Both Woodcutting level and tier of axe determines players' speed of chopping logs. Players with high enough Attack levels can equip the axes that match the respective metals, but having an axe equipped

is not necessary in order to chop a tree; having one in the player's inventory also works.

Most trees follow the same mechanics when cut, rolling to chop a log every 4 game ticks. All trees have different chances to chop a log depending on the tree being cut, the player's Woodcutting level, and the axe being used. With a high Woodcutting level and a good axe, a 100% success rate can be achieved when cutting certain lower-level trees.

Trees despawn on a timer that activates after the first cut and regenerates if players stop cutting the tree before it is fully chopped
























After a tree depletes, a timer counts down to its respawn. Each tree has its own timer and is roughly related to the tier of tree. Oak and willow trees take 8.4 seconds, maple trees take 35.4 seconds, yew trees take 59.4 seconds, and magic and redwood trees take 119.4 seconds.

Members have a chance to receive the beaver woodcutting pet while chopping trees around Gielinor.

Lumberjack outfit

Obtaining the Lumberjack outfit in Old School RuneScape is a two-part process that involves completing certain activities in the minigame "Temple Trekking" and the event "Burgh de Rott Ramble." This outfit provides a 2.5% bonus experience when training Woodcutting, making it highly desirable for players looking to level up their Woodcutting skill faster. Follow this detailed guide to obtain the Lumberjack outfit:

Part 1: Temple Trekking


Completion of the "In Aid of the Myreque" quest (required to access Burgh de Rott).

At least 4 in Attack, Strength, Crafting, and Fletching.

At least 20 in Mining (for the Morytania diary requirement).

Getting to Burgh de Rott:

Use the Ectophial (given as a reward after completing "Ghosts Ahoy" quest) to teleport to Port Phasmatys.

Exit the Ectofuntus building and head east to reach Burgh de Rott.

Start Temple Trekking:

Talk to one of the six followers near the east entrance of Burgh de Rott.

Choose an escort from the available options (low, medium, or high-level followers).

Guide Your Companion:

During Temple Trekking, you'll need to guide your chosen companion through various encounters and obstacles, protecting them from dangers.

Be prepared with food and gear suitable for combat.

Reach Paterdomus:

Successfully guide your companion through the trek until you reach Paterdomus.

This trek will end when you arrive at Paterdomus, and your companion will depart.

Repeat the Process:

To get additional lumberjack outfit pieces, talk to the same follower you chose earlier.

Keep repeating the Temple Trekking minigame until you have acquired all the outfit pieces (boots, trousers, top, and gloves).

Part 2: Burgh de Rott Ramble


Completion of the "In Aid of the Myreque" quest.

Full completion of the easy, medium, and hard tasks of the Morytania Diary. The hard diary completion is essential.

Start the Event:

Talk to any of the six followers near the entrance of Burgh de Rott.

Choose an escort from the available options (easy, medium, or hard difficulty).

Guide Your Companion:

Similar to Temple Trekking, you'll need to guide your chosen companion through various encounters, protecting them from dangers.

The hard difficulty path offers better rewards.

Obtain Lumberjack Outfit Pieces:

Successfully complete the event and reach the end of the route.

Talk to the follower you chose to get more pieces of the Lumberjack outfit.

Repeat and Farm:

You can repeat the Burgh de Rott Ramble event as many times as you want to obtain additional outfit pieces.

Note: The easy and medium difficulty paths offer the boots and trousers pieces, while the hard difficulty path offers the top and gloves pieces of the Lumberjack outfit.


It's recommended to do the hard difficulty path in Burgh de Rott Ramble, as it offers better rewards.

Bring adequate combat gear and food during both Temple Trekking and Burgh de Rott Ramble to ensure a smooth journey.

If you need to bank during the events, use the bank deposit box in Burgh de Rott or the bank in Port Phasmatys (if you have completed the "Ghosts Ahoy" quest).

Be patient while completing these activities, as obtaining the full Lumberjack outfit may take some time. The bonus experience gained from the outfit will significantly benefit your Woodcutting training in the long run. Good luck!

Farming methods

Level 1-15:

Trees: Start by cutting regular trees located all over Gielinor.

Location: Lumbridge is a great starting area, but you can find regular trees everywhere.

Method: Click on the tree to chop it down and collect the logs.

Level 15-30:

Trees: Oak trees provide better experience than regular trees.

Location: Oak trees are commonly found in the area north of Lumbridge, Taverley, and Draynor Village.

Method: Chop down oak trees and collect the oak logs.

Level 30-45:

Trees: Willow trees become available at level 30, offering faster experience rates.

Location: You can find willow trees near Draynor Village, Barbarian Outpost, and south of Seers' Village.

Method: Cut willow trees and collect the willow logs.

Level 45-60:

Trees: Teak trees are a viable option once you reach level 35, offering even better experience rates.

Location: Teak trees are located in the Hardwood Grove on the Tai Bwo Wannai island (requires completion of Jungle Potion quest).

Method: Chop teak trees and collect the teak logs.

Level 60-75:

Trees: At level 60, you can start cutting maple trees for improved experience rates.

Location: Maple trees are found near Seers' Village, behind the bank.

Method: Chop maple trees and collect the maple logs.

Level 75-90:

Trees: Yew trees become available at level 60 and provide excellent experience rates.

Location: Yew trees can be found in Edgeville, Catherby, and the Woodcutting Guild.

Method: Cut yew trees and collect the yew logs.

Level 90-99:

Trees: Magic trees offer the best Woodcutting experience in the game.

Location: Magic trees are scattered throughout Gielinor, with concentrated spots in the Woodcutting Guild, the Mage Training Arena, and the Tree Gnome Stronghold.

Method: Chop magic trees and collect the magic logs.

Alternative Training Methods:

*Bird's Nest Hunting (45+): While chopping trees, there's a chance to receive a bird's nest. You can obtain valuable seeds and rings from these nests, making it a lucrative side activity.

*Redwood Trees (90+): If you have access to Fossil Island (requires Bone Voyage quest), you can chop redwood trees for high experience rates. Note that redwood trees are quite slow to chop, so it's not the most efficient method.

*Woodcutting Guild (60+): The Woodcutting guild is located in the south-western corner of Hosidius, providing various woodcutting features for members. The guild requires at least level 60 woodcutting and 75% Hosidius favour to enter. Within the guild, players receive an invisible +7 boost to their woodcutting skill, allowing them to chop trees significantly faster, but not trees that require a woodcutting level above their visible level.

The guild contains a wide variety of trees found across Gielinor, including higher level yew and magic trees; all found in close proximity to both a sawmill and bank. It is the only location of redwood trees in the game, except for those grown by the player within the Farming guild. Other notable features include:

*Perry's Chop-chop Shop, the only shop in Old School RuneScape that sells rune axes.

*A dungeon containing many Ents


Always use the best available axe for your level to increase your chopping speed.

Consider using a Dragon Axe, which provides a special attack that boosts your Woodcutting speed for a short time.

Wearing the Lumberjack outfit (pieces obtained from Temple Trekking/Burgh de Rott Ramble) grants a 2.5% experience boost.

Utilize the "Shift-drop" option in the game settings to speed up the process of dropping logs while cutting.

Remember, Woodcutting is a slow and steady skill to train. Be patient and consistent, and you'll eventually reach level 99 and become a seasoned lumberjack in Old School RuneScape!
