|Examine||A beautiful old teak tree.|
A teak tree is a tropical hardwood lumber tree that requires level 35 Woodcutting to cut, granting 85 Woodcutting experience for each set of teak logs received. Teak trees provide some of the highest Woodcutting experience per hour, so it is common to find multiple players attempting to cut teak trees.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]
A teak tree will fell after 50 ticks (30 seconds) of chopping; the depletion timer regenerates if players stop cutting the tree before it is fully chopped. Once felled, it will take 15 ticks (9 seconds) to respawn.
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.
Cut chance[edit | edit source]
The following chart indicates the success rate of chopping teak with different types of axes.
Additional drops[edit | edit source]
- Beaver – Teak trees have a chance to drop the beaver Woodcutting pet. At level 35 Woodcutting there is a 1 in 263,461 chance to receive the beaver and a 1 in 261,861 chance at level 99.
- Crystal shard - Teak 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.
- Bird nest – There is a 1 in 256 chance to drop from teak trees. The bird nest will be dropped on the ground and will despawn after two minutes if not picked up. The Bird nest will be given in place of logs.
- Clue nest – Teak trees have a chance of dropping any tier of clue nest, based on Woodcutting level, the tree's base chance, and access to the reward tiers of Combat Achievements. See Clue nest § Woodcutting rates for a detailed breakdown.
Farming[edit | edit source]
With level 35 Farming, teak seeds may be grown into a Teak tree, which gives teak logs when cut down. Checking on a fully grown and healthy teak tree will give 7,290 Farming experience. It takes 74.6 hours to grow. When cut down, the tree will automatically regrow after a period of time. A player may also pay 15 limpwurt roots (can be noted) to a nearby squirrel to guarantee its growth.
Lore[edit | edit source]
There are several mentions of teak trees 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 tree species that naturally occurs among other jungle trees. Coveted for its durability and water resistance, it is mainly used boat building, exterior construction, furniture and carving. Another prized feature of teak wood is its resistance to termite damage. A final interesting fact is that teak trees are more closely related to mint than to any other trees in Gielinor.
