A teak is a dainty tree that can be found in various locations at the rare tree Rare tree map icon.png icon. Level 35 Woodcutting is required to chop down this tree. On the 20 March 2012, the teak trees were graphically updated in a hidden update. As of 23 September 2009 they have approximately a 2.5% chance to give a special teak log, which can be traded with the Sawmill operator for money or a conversion of logs in your inventory into planks with 2 special teak logs. Along with mahogany logs, teak logs are used mainly for Construction, but they can also be lit for 105 Firemaking experience points and 120 adding to a fire. They can also be made into a crossbow stock, giving 27 Fletching experience.

Cutting teaks gives between 41,000, with level 35, and 92,000, with level 99, Woodcutting experience per hour. At level 99 Woodcutting a player using beaver familiars, a legendary lumberjack aura, full lumberjack clothing, perfect juju woodcutting potions and a superior log-splitting scrimshaw can gain 140,000 experience an hour. Using crimson skillchompas in addition to these boosts can grant around 147,000 Woodcutting experience an hour. Using crystallise and light form as well as beaver familiars, a legendary lumberjack aura, full lumberjack clothing, perfect juju woodcutting potions, and level 99 Woodcutting can give around 237,000 experience an hour.

The best place to chop teak trees is either in the Hardwood grove near Tai Bwo Wannai village or on Ape Atoll. The best practice for banking logs when chopping in the Hardwood grove is by either having Rionasta send them to the bank for 10 trading sticks each, by storing them in the bank deposit box north of Jiminua's Jungle Store after completion of the Deadliest Catch quest or by using a quick teleport to a bank, such as a TokKul-Zo, and teleporting back using a Tai Bwo Wannai Teleport scroll. If chopping on Ape Atoll one can very quickly store their logs by using the deposit box just west of the trees, which is also unlocked after Deadliest Catch. This deposit box is also way quicker to access than the one on Karamja.
