The teak tree is a tropical hardwood tree that can be found in various locations. Level 35 Woodcutting is required to chop down this tree, and it yields 85 experience per teak log cut.

Teaks may be cut and banked for a small amount of cash. A good tactic for this is to go to the teak tree south-west of Castle Wars. When your inventory is full, use a Ring of dueling to teleport to Castle Wars, bank the teaks, and repeat the process.

For cutting and dropping teaks, or cutting and burning teaks, there are some spots that can be used, including Ape Atoll, the Kharazi Jungle, and the teak enclosure in Tai Bwo Wannai Village. All these locations have at least 3 teak trees close together. On Ape Atoll, you can wood cut while in the monkey form using a Monkey greegree. There is more space to burn logs in Kharazi Jungle and Ape Atoll than Tai Bwo Wannai, but it is still possible to burn logs in the Tai Bwo Wannai location with some maneuvering.

Teak trees are considered rare trees for the purpose of the rare trees minimap icon (Rare trees icon.png), so by travelling to any of the above-mentioned areas, you can find the location of the trees by going toward this icon.

Depletion chance

As with most other trees that can give more than one log, teak trees have a 1 in 8 chance of depleting per log chopped.

Log chance

With a dragon axe, the chance of successfully getting a log ranges linearly from 60/255 at level 1 Woodcutting to 190/255 at level 99[1]

Tree locations

Teak trees can be found in these locations:


Along with Mahogany logs, Teak logs are used mainly for Construction in which they are transformed into teak planks at the Sawmill operator, north-east of Varrock, or at the Woodcutting Guild, but they can also be burned at level 35 Firemaking for 105 Firemaking experience. They can also be made into a crossbow stock at Fletching level 46, giving 27 Fletching experience.


Planting a teak sapling at the hardwood tree patch in Fossil Island requires level 35 Farming and grants 25 Farming experience when planted and 7,290 experience when fully grown, which takes approximately 74.6 hours. A nearby squirrel will watch after a teak tree for 15 limpwurt roots.
