Yew seed detail.png

Yew seeds are the second highest level tree seeds that can be grown in a standard tree patch, after magic seeds. Players must have level 60 Farming to plant it. Boosts are allowed. Boosts are not needed to prune the tree in case of disease.

A yew seed, when planted in a plant pot, allowed to sprout into a sapling and then planted in a tree patch, may grow into a yew tree. Planting the seed gives 81 experience and takes about 6.67 hours to be fully grown. Checking the health gives 7069.9, for a total of 7150.9 experience per seed (unless the tree dies while growing).

They are obtained from a bird nest that has dropped from a tree, received from a bird house, by exchanging the drops from a Giant Mole under Falador Park, or as a drop from certain boss monsters. It is also possible to obtain this seed from a bird nest from the Managing Miscellania rewards at Miscellania (after Throne of Miscellania) and Etceteria (after Royal Trouble).

The farmer will tend a player's yew tree for 10 cactus spines (these can be noted). If the player wants to buy the spines from other players, they should be aware that the Grand Exchange price for 10 cactus spines is currently 12,840, while a yew tree seed currently costs 69,481. About 1/8 yew saplings will die. In a test of 257 yew trees with no farmer payments, only 36 have died.

A fully grown yew tree can be cut to yield yew logs and grant Woodcutting experience. After it is cut down, it will eventually regrow, or a spade may be used on the stump to produce yew roots and clear the patch for planting a new tree. The amount of roots given depends on the player's Farming level (boosts can be used):

  • At level 60, a player obtains one yew root.
  • At level 68, a player obtains two yew roots.
  • At level 76, a player obtains three yew roots.
  • At level 84, a player obtains four yew roots.

Harvesting a yew tree planted in the patch near Varrock Palace for two roots is a requirement for the hard Varrock Diary.
