Old School RuneScape Wiki

Tree seeds are seeds that are planted in tree patches that grow into your own personal tree as part of the Farming skill. Growing trees is somewhat different to other plants, in that there is an intermediate growing stage where the seed must be grown into a sapling before being planted into a cleared tree patch.

First, an empty plant pot may be used on any farming patch, even if something is growing in it, with a gardening trowel to fill the plant pot with soil. Alternatively, one can purchase a full plant pot from any of the farming shops. Plant one tree seed on the pot with the gardening trowel and water it with a watering can. After a few minutes, the seedling will grow into a sapling which can then be planted in a cleared tree patch.

Before transplanting the sapling, the player can add compost or supercompost to the patch, or hire a farmer to look after it in order to lower its rate of getting diseased. However, seedlings and saplings are unable to become diseased while growing in a plant pot.

Similar to bushes, most of the experience gained in the Farming skill is from checking on the tree's health, not in planting it or chopping it down.

Note: Saplings and trees do not need watering.
