This article is about the regular type of tree patch. For fruit tree patches, see Fruit tree patch.

Tree patches are farming patches used by players to grow their own personal trees. Much like other trees, these can be chopped using the Woodcutting skill to obtain logs. The necessary tree seeds to grow them must be obtained from bird nests or other sources. Planted trees do not require watering.

First, an empty plant pot may be used on any farming patch, even if something is growing in it, with a gardening trowel to fill the plant pot with soil. Plant one tree seed on the pot with the gardening trowel and water it with a watering can. After a few minutes, the seedling will grow into a sapling which can then be planted in a cleared tree patch; players must have a spade in their inventory when planting and removing the stump of a tree.

Before or after transplanting the sapling, the player can add compost, supercompost, or ultracompost to the patch to reduce chance of disease. Alternatively, they can pay the nearby farmer to look after it to completely eliminate disease-risk; seedlings and saplings are unable to become diseased while growing in a plant pot.

To plant a new tree the old one needs to be cleared from the patch. This can be done by chopping it down and digging up the roots or by paying the farmer 200 coins to remove it. Only a small amount of Farming experience is gained planting the sapling, with the vast majority gained from checking on the tree's health.

Similar to bushes, most of the experience gained in the Farming skill is from checking on the tree's health, not in planting it or chopping it down.
