Magic seed detail.png

Magic seeds are high-level tree seeds. At level 75 Farming, magic seeds may be planted in plant pots with a trowel and watered to become magic saplings.

After about 8 hours it will be a fully grown magic tree, granting 13,768.3 Farming experience when inspected, and can then be cut to yield magic logs (and grant Woodcutting experience). After the tree has been cut down, it will regrow after 2 minutes. Using a spade on the cut tree roots before the tree has regrown yields magic roots and makes the tree patch available for planting a new tree. Alternatively, you can ask the nearby gardener to chop down the tree for 200 coins. This instantly removes the tree whether or not it has been cut down from the patch, making the patch available for a new seed to be planted, but no magic roots are obtained.

The farmer next to the patch will protect a growing magic tree if it becomes diseased, in exchange for 25 coconuts. If this tree becomes diseased, using secateurs or magic secateurs on it to prune the diseased leaves will bring it back to a healthy state and will yield leaves.

In order to plant a new one, the tree must be chopped and then dug up, rewarding the player with magic roots. The amount of roots given depends on the player's Farming level (boosts can be used):

  • At level 75, a player obtains one magic root.
  • At level 83, a player obtains two magic roots.
  • At level 91, a player obtains three magic roots.
  • At level 99, a player obtains four magic roots.

Magic seeds may be found rarely in bird nests, which can be obtained randomly while Woodcutting or from Managing Miscellania, as well as doing bird house runs.

Paying Prissy Scilla to protect a magic tree is an elite task in the Western Provinces Diary. Obtaining at least 3 Magic roots at once when digging up your magic tree in Falador is an elite task in the Falador Diary.
