This article is about the Woodcutting skill. For training the skill, see Woodcutting/Training.

Woodcutting is used to gather logs which are used primarily in Firemaking and Fletching.


The amount of time each Woodcutting action takes can be reduced by 5-50% by purchasing axe upgrades, 15% by purchasing the Master of Nature god upgrade, 15% with the Woodcutting Skillcape (or 20% with the Superior Woodcutting Skillcape), 6% while the Stepping Stones obstacle is active, 3% with the Elite Pillar of Expertise pillar, 2% with Harold, 0.2 seconds for any trees with a Mastery level of 99, and a further 0.3 seconds while the Ent + Eagle Synergy is active. The lowest possible action interval which may be reached with some of the lower level trees is 0.25 seconds.

Items Received

The player will sometimes receive items other than Logs while cutting trees. Each of these items is rolled separately, so it is possible to get multiple different items from the same action.

A single Bird Nest can drop with a 0.5% chance while cutting any tree. The chance of receiving a nest and quantity of nests received can be increased in a number of ways, as listed on the Bird Nest page. If the Ent + Monkey Synergy is active, there is a 35% chance that the nest will instead be replaced with a random item of silver or gold jewellery.

Raven Nests can drop with a 3% while cutting any tree requiring at least Woodcutting Level 100. This drop chance may only be increased with the Clue Chasers Insignia, while the quantity dropped can be increased by the same bonuses which affect Bird Nest drop quantities.

A single Ash may drop while cutting any tree, provided the Meteorite Axe upgrade has been purchased, or either the Meteorite Woodcutting Amulet or Meteorite Woodcutting Ring are equipped, all of which increase the drop chance by 2%.

If the Crown of Madremonte is equipped, Mushrooms may drop at a 5% chance from any Woodcutting action.

Additionally, the Ent + Mole Synergy grants a 5% chance for a random normal Gem to drop.

Axe Upgrades

Woodcutting upgrades can be purchased from the shop. There are several axe upgrades, which provide an increase to Woodcutting speed and a Multi-Tree upgrade, which grants the ability to chop down two different trees at the same time. The bonuses provided by these upgrades are permanently active once purchased, they do not need to be equipped or otherwise enabled.
