This article is about the free-to-play guide. For the members' guide, see Pay-to-play Woodcutting training.

EquipmentEdit

An axe is the tool required to train Woodcutting. There are many different types of axes available to free-to-play players, ranging from bronze to rune. It is recommended that players always use the best axe available at their level as a better axe improves woodcutting speed. Axes do not have to be wielded, although wielding one is best as it frees up an inventory space in a player's backpack. Axes can be wielded with the required Attack level for the metal they are made of. A Woodcutting level of 41 allows players to use rune axes, the best axe available to free-to-play players.

TreesEdit

Level Name Exp per log
1 Logs Trees 25

Levels 1-99Edit

Levels 1-15 – TreesEdit

Logs The only way to get from level 1 to level 15 is by cutting trees, which grant 25 experience for each log collected. Trees can be found throughout Gielinor.

  • Starting experience - 0
  • Experience needed - 2411
  • Logs needed - 97 (2,425 experience)

Levels 15-30 – Oak treesEdit

Oak logs At level 15, players should switch to cutting oak trees, which grant 37.5 experience for each log collected. Oak trees can be found throughout Gielinor.

A great spot for cutting down oak trees would be under Falador, and above Port Sarim. Between these cities is a cabbage field and when ran though the cabbage field there are around 10 Oak trees located.

  • Starting experience - 2425
  • Experience needed - 10,938
  • Oak logs needed - 292 (10,950 experience)

Levels 30-99 – Willow treesEdit

Willow logs At level 30, players can switch to cutting willow trees, which grant 67.5 experience for each log collected. However, each log costs 25 coins less than oak, this results in a much lower profit if one is banking the collected logs. The best place to chop willow trees is south-west of the bank in Draynor Village. Chopping willows is the fastest method of training Woodcutting available to free players.

  • Starting experience - 13,375
  • Experience needed - 13,021,056
  • Willow logs needed - 192,905 (13,021,087.5 experience)

Other methods (30-99) Edit

Levels 30-60 – Willow trees Edit

Willow logs At level 30, players can switch to cutting willow trees, which grant 67.5 experience for each log collected. The best place to chop willow trees is south-west of the bank in Draynor Village. Chopping willows is the fastest method of training Woodcutting available to free players. South of Port Sarim, southwest of Rimmington are two willow trees that are rarely occupied and provide ample space for firemaking.

  • Starting experience - 13,375
  • Experience needed - 260,367
  • Willow logs needed - 3858 (260,415 experience)

Levels 60-99 – Yew treesEdit

Yew logs At level 60, players can switch to cutting yew trees, which grant 175 experience for each log collected. The best place to chop yew trees is the Varrock Palace grounds, immediately north of the palace itself, due to the location's proximity to the Grand Exchange. Chopping yews yields significantly less experience per hour than chopping willows. However, it also results in much greater profits.

  • Starting experience - 273,790
  • Experience needed - 12,760,641
  • Yew logs needed - 72,918 (12,760,650 experience)
