Willow seed detail.png

Willow seeds may be grown into a willow tree which gives willow logs. You must have level 30 Farming to plant it. Planting a willow seed yields 25 Farming experience. It costs 1 Basket of Apples to protect as payment to the farmer, and takes roughly 280 minutes (4 hours 40 minutes) to finish growing. Willow seeds can be obtained by searching a bird's nest, looting nature implings or by doing Wintertodt.

By using secateurs on a fully grown willow tree, the player can harvest willow branches. These branches start to grow only after the tree's health has been checked, at a rate of 1 every 5 minutes, up to a maximum of 6 grown at a time.

In order to plant a new one, the tree must be chopped and then dug up, rewarding the player with willow roots. The amount of roots given depends on the players Farming level (boosts can be used):

  • At level 30, a player obtains one willow root.
  • At level 38 a player obtains two willow roots.
  • At level 46, a player obtains three willow roots.
  • At level 54, a player obtains four willow roots.
