A mahogany tree is a lumber tree requiring level 50 Woodcutting to cut. Mahogany trees provide mahogany logs when cut and grant 125 Woodcutting experience for each set of logs collected. Mahogany logs have great value, and mahogany trees are cut as a moneymaker as a result.
Tree locations[edit | edit source]
Mahogany trees are considered rare trees for the purpose of the rare trees minimap icon . The trees are shown on the World Map and Minimap as a droopy tree . The rare tree icon and the droopy tree image are shared with several other trees, so the icon and image does not directly mean it is a mahogany tree. Mahogany trees can be found in the following locations:
- North-east Prifddinas, next to the Sawmill operator. (Requires completing Song of the Elves.)
- The Hardwood Grove at Tai Bwo Wannai - 4 trees. A payment of 100 Trading sticks is required to enter the grove if the player has not completed the Elite tasks in the Karamja achievement diary. Mahogany trees can only be chopped here after playing the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame once. After finishing the Jungle Potion quest, players using the Hardwood Grove near Tai Bwo Wannai can speak to Rionasta to send mahogany logs to their bank for 10 trading sticks each.
- Eastern Kharazi Jungle - 3 trees by the easternmost tree marker (Requires starting Legends' Quest.)
- Small islands off the coast of Mos Le'Harmless, accessible via the cave containing the Cave horrors. (Requires completing Cabin Fever.)
- South-west Ape Atoll - 2 trees. (Requires starting Monkey Madness I.)
- North of the Farming Guild in the Kebos Lowlands - 2 trees. West of the fairy ring code CIR.
- Etceteria - Cannot obtain logs from these trees. They are chopped to gain favor in the Managing Miscellania activity.
Additional drops[edit | edit source]
- Beaver – Mahogany trees have a chance to drop the beaver Woodcutting pet. At level 50 Woodcutting there is a 1 in 219,373 chance to receive the beaver and a 1 in 218,148 chance at level 99.
- Bird nest – There is 1 in 256 chance to drop from mahoganies. 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.
- Clue nest – Mahoganies can drop all clue nests. At level 50 Woodcutting there is an approximately 1 in 1,470 chance to receive an easy-elite clue nest and a 1 in 1,108 chance at level 99. Beginner clue nests have a universal 1 in 1000 chance to be dropped.
- Crystal shard - Mahogany trees cut in Prifddinas can drop crystal shards. There is a 1 in 80 chance to receive a crystal shard when a log is received. 
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
Mahoganies have a 1 in 8 chance of depleting when receiving a log, and a respawn time of 14 ticks or 8.4 seconds. A roll to receive a log is done every 4 game ticks when chopping. 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.
Farming[edit | edit source]
At level 55 Farming, players can plant mahogany saplings in the hardwood tree patches on Fossil Island. Each sapling grants 63 Farming experience when planted and 15,720 exp when fully grown, which takes approximately 85.3 hours or 3.5 days. A nearby squirrel will watch after a mahogany tree for 25 Yanillian hops.
Lore[edit | edit source]
There are several mentions of mahoganies by NPCs around Gielinor as well as in books. The following text is transcluded from Gielinor's flora - trees. The information found within the book is more often than not just flavour text, and does not reflect their properties or uses within the game itself.
A tropical hardwood species producing a straight-grained, reddish timber. Mahogany is relatively free of imperfections and with excellent workability and durability. Because of this, it is prized by high end furniture makers. Mahogany also resists rot, making is attractive in boat cabin construction. Further, being a tonewood means that it is often used for musical instruments, particularly guitars, producing a better tone compared to other commonly used woods, such as maple. The origin of the name is likely a miscommunication of the old Karamjan word m'oganwo.
