Woodcutting is used to gather logs which are used in Firemaking (skill).svg Firemaking and Fletching (skill).svg Fletching. Each Woodcutting action has a 0.5% chance to obtain a Bird Nest (item).svg Bird Nest. This chance can be increased by using Bird Nest Potions and Clue Chasers Insignia (item).svg Clue Chaser's Insignia. Raising Woodcutting to Woodcutting Level 99 will unlock the Woodcutting Skillcape (item).svg Woodcutting Skillcape for purchase from the Shop. Equipping the Woodcutting Skillcape will halve the time required to cut logs.

Purchasing the Master of Nature (upgrade).svg Master of Nature god upgrade reduces the time to cut a log by 20%.
