A Redwood tree requires level 90 Woodcutting to chop down and grants 380 Woodcutting experience per set of redwood logs. Unlike other standard logs, players are not able to fletch these logs into bows, due to them being too strong and resistant. However, players are able to fletch these logs into a redwood shield at level 92 fletching, granting 216 experience,

These trees are found exclusively in the Woodcutting Guild. As the trees are very large, there are two levels built around it. The first level is accessible via the rope ladders at the very bottom, while the second level is accessed via the carved entrance between the trees. Each side of the trees have 2 sections to chop, totalling to 6 sections per tree and 24 sections overall. Uniquely, players can only obtain clue nests from redwoods, not seed, ring, or egg bird nests; this also means that wearing a strung rabbit foot has no effect when chopping redwoods.

Cutting redwoods can provide a player around 60,000 to 70,000 experience per hour. A lumberjack outfit can be worn in order to increase experience gained by 2.5% if the player has the full outfit. Although redwoods grant much slower experience than power-cutting teaks, they require extremely little attention, as one side can typically be chopped for minutes before it runs out.

Players have a 1 in 11 chance for every log chopped of depleting a section of a redwood tree.[1]

Chopping redwood

A group of players chopping redwood. The entrance to the upper level can be seen on the right tree.


  • Originally, a redwood tree only had four choppable areas (two on each side). Player feedback eventually changed the trees to be much larger and have more choppable areas.
    • Redwood trees also initially had a 1 in 16 chance for every log chopped to deplete a section of a redwood tree. This was later changed to 1 in 11.
