A player attempting to cut a tree with visible bubble.

Woodcutting is a skill available on RuneScape Classic. The skill consists of cutting down trees and obtaining logs. A higher woodcutting level will give players more trees to cut and a better chance of chopping down a tree. After having been cut down, a tree will respawn after a certain amount of time.

It is possible to fail to cut a tree, in which the message, You slip and fail to hit the tree., appears. The player doesn't get the logs, and the tree remains standing. If the player fails to cut the tree, they must click again.

Logs Types of logsEdit

Many different kinds of logs can be gathered with the woodcutting skill at increasingly higher woodcutting levels. All logs can be used to make bows with the fletching skill. Furthermore, logs can be burnt with the firemaking skill. However, unlike RuneScape 2, ONLY regular logs can be used for firemaking, not the higher level logs.

Type Required Level Experience
Logs 1 25
Oak logs 15 37.5
Willow logs 30 62.5
Maple logs 45 100
Yew logs 60 175
Magic logs 75 250

Types of axesEdit

The better the axe, the better the chance of successfully chopping a tree and receiving logs. Unlike RuneScape 2, there is no woodcutting level requirement to use each axe for woodcutting.

Bob's Brilliant Axes is a shop in Lumbridge that sells bronze to steel axes. Higher level axes can only be acquired through smithing, as a drop from certain NPCs, or by trading with other players.

Bronze axe Bronze Axe 16gp
Iron axe Iron Axe 56gp
Steel axe Steel Axe 200gp

Log certificatesEdit

Some types of logs can be exchanged for certificates. The certificates are worth 5 logs of that type, and stack for easier carrying and trading of large numbers of logs. Chuck on the north side of East Ardougne will exchange the following logs for certificates and vice versa:

Quest rewardsEdit

The following quests offer woodcutting experience rewards:


  • Originally, there were only normal trees in Runescape Classic, and the experience gained when cutting trees raised with every level you gained according to the formula XP = 28.25 + (level * 1.75).
  • When the skill fletching was released, Jagex added new trees for members and made a fixed limit of experience on normal trees. It was 12.5 experience briefly and later changed to 25 experience. While Jagex compensated for this by adding one-click woodcutting, many players (especially free users) were upset that reaching a high-level woodcutting would take an unfortunately longer period of time.
  • The first player to reach level 99 woodcutting was Everdred.
