The windswept tree plays a part Olaf's Quest, in which it is cut down to receive windswept logs. It is also used as a marker for the entrance to Brine Rat Cavern. It can be found just north of the DKS fairy ring.
This is also the location for the Fremennik achievement "Find the highest tree on the Fremennik mainland". You only have to be close to the tree to accomplish the task, not right up to it.

- The windswept tree may be a reference to a line from the Old Norse poem Hávamál, in which the Norse god Odin hung himself for nine days and nine nights on a "windswept tree".
