A droopy tree.
These trees are found near water.

A willow tree requires level 30 Woodcutting to chop down. It often gives more than one set of willow logs before being cut down at 67.5 Woodcutting experience per set of logs cut. These trees are often used for high level woodcutters who want experience as they give a good amount relative to the time taken. Chopping these trees is arguably the best Woodcutting experience for free players. Thus, it is common to find large quantities of woodcutters on a willow tree in a free-to-play world. There is a high demand for the logs, for the same reason as the woodcutters, because they are cheap but give good Fletching experience.

They are also popular because they are found in close proximity to banks and are in clusters. Willow trees are found near almost any body of water on RuneScape. They are commonly found by rivers, lakes, and oceans.

Willows also have the highest chance of giving a bird's nest, which can be crushed to make a crushed nest.

Main article: Firemaking

A player needs level 30 Firemaking and a tinderbox to turn willow logs into a fire. Doing so earns the player 90 experience towards their Firemaking skill.


Main article: Farming

A willow tree can be grown using the Farming skill in any of the tree patches located around RuneScape. To do so requires level 30 Farming, a spade, and a willow tree sapling. When planted it earns the player 25 experience points, as well as another 1,456.3 experience points for checking the fully grown tree's health. Once fully grown the tree may be cut down as usual granting Woodcutting experience points. A player may also pay one basket of apples to a nearby farmer to guarantee it's growth. A willow sapling will take approximately 5 hours, or 300 minutes before it fully grows.


Player-grown willow trees that are fully grown can be trimmed with secateurs, giving the player a willow branch. Six willow branches can be crafted on a loom into a basket, giving 56 Crafting exp. 



Main article: Fletching

Willow logs from willow trees can be cut into willow shortbows at level 35 Fletching (granting 33.3 Fletching experience for unstrung and another 33.3 XP for stringing), and willow longbows at level 40 (granting 41.5 XP for unstrung and another 41.5 XP for stringing).
