What are Crystal Trees?[edit | edit source]

Crystal trees are the highest level trees in runescape. A minimum level of 94 in woodcutting is required to cut them. They do not give any resources, only experience. There are 7 crystal trees. Only one crystal tree is active at one time. They stay active for 2 hours and as soon as one becomes inactive, another crystal tree at a different location goes active instead. When looked at an inactive tree, you will receive a message telling you in which direction the active tree is. 

The Crystal Tree's re-spawn time is usually the same on every world (not always though). The locations are different.

Crystal And Elder Tree Locations[edit | edit source]

Crystal Geodes[edit | edit source]

While cutting crystal trees, crystal geodes might be dropped on the ground. They stay on the ground for 30 seconds. The geodes can contain uncut gems, but they can, very rarely, also contain crystal seeds or crystal triskelion fragments.

Items to increase the chance of getting a crystal geode:

  • Tree-shaking scrimshaw: increased chance by 300% and lasts for 3 hours.
  • Superiour tree-shaking scrimshaw: increased chance by 400% and lasts for 4 hours.
  • Strung rabbit foot


Loot from 2.5K crystal geodes: 

  • 371 sapphires - 15%
  • 479 emeralds - 19%
  • 764 rubies - 30%
  • 741 diamonds - 29%
  • 132 dragonstones - 5%
  • 5 crystal seeds - 0.2%
  • 8 crystal triskelion fragments - 0.32% (~1 in 300)


Note: The scrimshaws also increase the chance of finding implings. These range from essence implings to kingly implings. Implings found using the scrimshaw last 5 minutes before despawning and are only visible to the wearer of the scrimshaw. It’s suggested that you bring impling jars for maximum profit.

Woodcutting Boosts[edit | edit source]

Lumberjack outfit: 5% bonus xp for the full set (takes around 6-10 hours to get)

Beaver: invisible +2 woodcutting boost

God Banner: visible +2 woodcutting boost

Stealing creation: 140.5K BONUS xp per hour

When done with a non-combat stealing creation friendschat, one game + waiting time can take as little as 12 minutes. This means you can do up to 5 games per hour, resulting in 115 points per hour if you get 23 points per game. A proto-tools costs 20 points so this means you can get 5.75 proto-tools per hour. A proto-tool gives 24450 bonus xp and thus the amount of bonus xp per hour is 24450 * 5.75 = 140.5K.

Note that the lumberjack aura, log-splitting scrimshaws and woodcutting urns do NOT work with crystal trees.

Experience Rates[edit | edit source]

The following xp rates were tested with 99 woodcutting and a dragon hatchet or inferno adze.

Ivy [edit | edit source]

  • 80k xp per hour
  • 84k xp per hour with lumberjack outfit

Crystal tree [edit | edit source]

  • 105k xp per hour with lumberjack outfit

Clan citadel tree [edit | edit source]

  • 105k xp per hour
  • 110k xp per hour with lumberjack outfit

(Tested at a tier 6 tree plot and with fealty level 3 (+ 45% xp). Got around 560 xp drops per hour so you can easily work out the xp per hour for yourself by multiplying the amount of xp you get per drop by 560.)

Arctic pines [edit | edit source]

  • 110k xp per hour with woodcutting urns 
(+ 27k fm xp per hour with inferno adze)
