Hollow trees are members-only trees that grow in the Haunted Woods and the Hollows areas of Morytania, east of Canifis. Woodcutting level 45 is required to cut them. When chopped, hollow trees will either give 82.5 experience, or bark and 357.7 experience, granting 9.74 or 42.21 equipment experience respectively. The former is much more common.
A player chopping a hollow tree.
Bark is one of the materials used by Wizard Jalarast in the Wizards' Tower to make splitbark equipment. It can also be used to light torches in the Haunted Woods for 100 Firemaking experience per torch. When lighting the bark in the torches, the player also regains 10 prayer points.
While cutting hollow trees with the inferno adze, it is possible to get 100 Firemaking experience on unsuccessful attempts. It is unknown whether this is intended or not.
- ^ Only when bark is received.
Cutting the trees can be somewhat dangerous for low-levelled players, due to the leeches and feral vampyres in the area. There are no vampyres in the grove nearest to Canifis, south-east of the lodestone and close to the entrance to the werewolf agility course and skullball course.
Since The Branches of Darkmeyer update, hollow trees can also be found south of Port Phasmatys, without any monsters or torches.
- Bird's nests have a chance of falling out of this tree.
At level 24 Hunter, wearing a strung rabbit foot gives a better chance of getting a drop.
At level 80 Woodcutting, wearing a tree-shaking scrimshaw will increase the chance by 300%.
At level 80 Woodcutting, wearing a superior tree-shaking scrimshaw will increase the chance by 400%.
