Woodcutting is a gathering skill that primarily involves chopping trees to obtain logs used in the Fletching, Firemaking, and Construction skills. Players with a higher Woodcutting level can chop down new types of trees and cut down trees quicker, especially as higher levels of axes become available.
Woodcutting is a useful skill for a low-levelled player to make money early in the game. On the map, locations of rare trees can be located with a tree icon.
Players can also grow their own trees to chop using the Farming skill. Additionally, at level 60 Woodcutting and above (which can be boosted), players can gain access to the Woodcutting Guild*, containing a wide variety of useful features.

Logs[edit | edit source]
The most common tree in MineScape, these trees are how players start off training Woodcutting. Both evergreen and dead trees (both small and big) also yield logs. Each tree only yields one log, after which they are cut down and respawn in a short time.
|Oak||15||37.5||These trees are fairly easy to find around wooded areas. Unlike normal trees, oak trees can yield multiple logs, and are used for training once the player has the ability to cut them.|
|Willow||30||67.5||These trees are found near water. Players can find them in and around Port Sarim, Draynor Village, Seers' Village, and Champions' Guild. A usually unoccupied area is also at the lake west of Farmer Fred's hut.|
|Maple tree||45||100||Maple trees are special trees which can be found only in northern Kandarin, Fremennik Province, Corsair Cove Resource Area* and the Woodcutting Guild. Experience per log increases to 110 after completing the Kandarin Medium Diary*.|
|Yew||60||175||The highest levelled tree for free players to cut, yew trees are quite uncommon throughout MineScape.|
|Magic tree||75||250||Cutting these trees takes time as they give logs at a very slow rate. You can find these trees at the Mage Training Arena*, Sorcerer's Tower, and south-west of Camelot. There are also a few just west of the south ladder to the bank in the Gnome Stronghold*, as well as inside the Woodcutting Guild*. Two trees can be found just south of the main bank in Hosidius.|
