A dying tree can be chopped down to provide logs and 25 Woodcutting experience. They are the same as normal trees but with a different look, and can be found around Varrock and the Lumber Yard.
Dying trees have the exact same mechanics as regular trees, giving logs and always depleting after one section cut.
The tree respawns between 36–60 seconds, randomly, and is not influenced by world population.
The chance to successfully chop is affected by the axe used and Woodcutting level, better axes and a higher woodcutting level increases the likelihood of successfully receiving a log.
Kandarin headgear 1 and above gives double logs when cutting them.
- Beaver – Dying trees have a chance to drop the beaver Woodcutting pet. At level 1 Woodcutting there is a 1 in 317,622 chance to receive the beaver and a 1 in 315,172 chance at level 99.
- Bird nest – There is 1 in 256 chance to drop from trees. The bird nest will be dropped on the ground and will despawn after 30 second if not picked up. The Bird nest will be given in place of logs.
