Tree patch

Tree patches are a type of Farming patch which require 1 sapling to plant starting at level 15. There are 6 standard tree patches: at Lumbridge, Varrock Castle, Falador Park, Taverley, Gnome Stronghold and in the Trahaearn district of Prifddinas. For special tree patches see spirit tree patch or elder tree patch and for fruit trees see fruit tree patch.

As with fruit tree, calquat tree, and elder tree seeds, before a tree seed can be planted it must be used on a plant pot filled with soil to create a seedling. The seedling then needs to be watered. After a few minutes, the seedling will turn into a sapling, which can be planted in a tree patch. Most trees take several hours to mature once planted in the patch.

Once fully grown, trees in a tree patch can be cut down for logs like any other woodcutting tree in game; level requirements and hatchet effectiveness apply the same way as for woodcutting trees of the same type. As with natural trees, when chopping there is a chance of the farmed tree dropping bird's nests, on the other hand certain other mechanics do not work, see the farming page for more details. Once a tree is cut down it will leave a tree stump, which can be left to respawn or dug up to gain tree roots and empty the patch. As an alternative to chopping the tree themselves, players who do not wish to cut down and dig up a tree can simply use the right-click “clear” option on the tree to instantly remove it. This is faster and more convenient, but no logs or tree roots will be received. Gardeners can also instantly remove a tree if they are paid 200.
