Woodcutting

Mechanics

Click on a tree to begin cutting it down. Each time the listed interval for that tree elapses, one log for that tree will be added to the player's Bank. Additional items such as   Bird Nests may be acquired as well. Unlike   Mining nodes, trees do not have a "node HP" value and can be cut indefinitely.

A tree that is actively being cut will be highlighted in green. With the   Multi-Tree upgrade, up to two different trees can be cut at once. See the Multi-Tree page for more detailed information.

Additional Items

In addition to logs, each Woodcutting action also has a chance to produce other items. Each of these items is rolled separately, so it is possible to get multiple different items from the same action.

The chances listed below are before any modifiers. Drop rates for certain items, such as   Bird Nests, can be dramatically increased by upgrades and other buffs. Items that can be doubled are affected by all global and Woodcutting-specific doubling bonuses.

  Bird Nest Any 0.5% No None Chance and quantity increases are listed on the   Bird Nest page
  Raven Nest Any requiring   100+ 3% No     Corundum Axe or better
