A farmed elder tree.

At level 90 Farming, members can grow their own elder trees by planting an elder sapling in an elder tree patch, giving 321 experience for planting the sapling and a further 23,142 experience when the tree is fully grown. Sior will ask for 25 morchella mushrooms in payment for ensuring that the player’s tree will not die while growing. If buying the elder seed and mushrooms on the Grand Exchange, it will cost about 233,865 coins per tree. After at least 70 hours the tree is fully grown. It can be chopped as normal, and will also grow back normally when it is chopped down.

Cutting a log from a player-grown elder tree in the Crwys Clan district of Prifddinas and fletching it into an Elder shortbow is an achievement in the elite set of the Tirannwn achievements.
