A Celastrus tree is a high-leveled wood tree that can be grown with the Farming skill. Players with at least level 85 Farming may plant a celastrus sapling in the Farming Guild. The nearby farmer can be paid 8 potato cacti to protect a planted celastrus tree from becoming diseased.

Celastrus trees are grown by first planting a celastrus seed in a filled plant pot, which will turn into a celastrus sapling after being watered and allowed to grow. The celastrus sapling is then planted in the celastrus patch using a spade. Currently, the advanced tier of the Farming Guild holds the location of the only celastrus patch.

An amulet of nature can be bound to the patch to provide players with information about its growing progress. Once fully grown, the tree produces celastrus bark and will grant 14,130 exp on health check. This yield can be improved by composting the patch before it is fully grown,[1] having Magic secateurs equipped,[2] and having an Attas seed planted.[3]

The celastrus tree may be chopped. The tree provides no logs but instead grants 23.5 Farming experience for each piece of bark harvested. Once all of the bark has been harvested, the tree will become depleted. Unlike other trees grown in farming patches which regenerate or produce more fruit, the celastrus tree does not regrow bark, but remains in a "harvested" state. The fully harvested celastrus plant may then be cut down and cleared using a spade, preparing the patch to grow another tree.

Growing a celastrus tree is required for a Kourend & Kebos Elite Diary task.
