A dying tree gives out normal logs when cut. They can be found around Varrock and the Lumber Yard. There is a large number of dying trees in the Wilderness; however, a majority of them cannot be cut down. The few dying trees that can be cut down are located around level 35-39 Wilderness, near the fishing spots.
As the name suggests, they are not completely dead yet.

Woodcutting[edit | edit source]
A player only needs level 1 Woodcutting and an axe to chop down a tree. After being cut, the tree becomes a tree stump. For each set of logs a player collects from a tree, the player gains 25 experience towards their Woodcutting skill. Once they are cut, the logs can be sold to players on the Grand Exchange, traded, burned using the Firemaking skill, or fletched using the members-only Fletching skill.
The dying tree follows the same mechanics as most other trees and has a roll to chop a log every 4 game ticks. All trees have different chances to chop a log depending on the tree being cut, the players woodcutting level, and the axe being used. With a high woodcutting level and a good axe, a 100% success rate can be achieved when cutting a dying tree.
This tree belongs to the "basic" tree category. Trees in this category give logs when cut and are always downed after one section cut. Trees in this category also include tree, dead tree, evergreen, and jungle tree.
When chopping a dying tree tree, there is a 1/256 chance of receiving a bird's nest instead of logs.
The chance of receiving a clue nest from the main table(easy-elite) when cutting dying trees is 1 in rounded down, where is the player's woodcutting level. For example, a player with 99 woodcutting has a 1 in 1,567 chance of receiving a clue nest from the main table. Beginner clue nests also drop from trees on a separate table.
The chance to receive the beaver woodcutting pet while chopping dying trees is 1 in 317,647 - (Lvl * 25).
Kandarin headgear 1 and above gives double logs when cutting a dying tree tree.
Cut chance[edit | edit source]
Firemaking[edit | edit source]
The infernal axe provides firemaking experience when cutting trees. The axe has a 1/3 chance of burning any log received when cutting trees, providing half of the firemaking experience a player would have received if the log was burned normally. When cutting trees, dying the axe provides 20 firemaking experience per log burned. If a kandarin headgear 1 or above is worn in conjunction with the infernal axe, only one log is burned when a tree section is cut.
Fletching[edit | edit source]
Logs from dying trees can be cut into arrow shafts at level 1 Fletching (granting 5 Fletching experience), shortbows at level 5 (granting 5 XP for unstrung and another 5 XP for stringing), and longbows at level 10 (granting 10 XP for unstrung and another 10 XP for stringing).
