Ultimate 1-99 Woodcutting Guide Fastest and Cheapest


Oct 18, 2021

Today I am bringing to you guys the ultimate levels 1–99 Woodcutting Guide for Old School Runescape. As with most skills, there is always going to be a faster method, which requires more attention and clicking, and then a slower method which is usually more profitable. That is the case with Woodcutting, with the fast method bringing over 100000 XP per hour and the slower method making you up to and over 100000 GP per hour. Also, if you are unable to buy the best axe, make sure to head over to and buy osrs gold for the best prices and the fastest service!

As a friendly reminder, always use the highest tier axe for whatever level you are as they increase the experience rates! THIS GUIDE IS FOR P2P!

Levels 1–15 Regular Trees

Starting off at levels 1–15, the only thing you can cut is normal trees, and they are scattered all over Runescape. At level 1, you can already use the Iron Axe, as with most Combat items.

Levels 15–30 Oak Trees

At level 15–30, you can start cutting Oak Trees, which are actually surprisingly good for profit. Lower levels can make about 40000–50000 per hour cutting these. They are found in many locations across Runescape. But, the two locations I would recommend are Draynor or Varrock, as they are very close to a bank. At level 11 you unlock the Black Hatchet, and you should be using this to cut the Oak Trees. It will take about 500 Oak logs to get from level 15 to level 30, and that will only take you about half an hour.

Levels 30–60 Willow Trees

So, from levels 30 – 60 Woodcutting, the fastest XP you can get is cutting Willow Trees. For Pay to Play players, I would recommend going to Catherby to cut these. You should drop the logs with the Shift Drop option, since they are only about 6 coins each, and it is really not worth doing for profits. You unlock the Rune Axe at level 41 Woodcutting, which is the best ace for Free to Play, and seriously does speed up your XP rates per hour – up to 45000 XP per hour.

Levels 60-99 Teak Trees

From level 60 – 99, the fastest possible XP in the game, getting you 60 000 – 70 000 XP per hour, is Teak Logs. They can be cut at Ape Atoll or Castle Wars. You can actually get up to and over 100 000 XP per hour cutting Teaks if you are 3 tick Woodcutting. But, that is not necessarily very AFK. I am going to leave a link to a 3 ticking guide at the end of this article since I really am not very good at it, and I don’t really recommend doing it unless you are a hard-core player. At level 61, you unlock the Dragon Axe and the Infernal Axe, and as I have said, you should always be using the best possible Hatchet that you can. It is going to require you to cut around 150 000 Teak Logs to get to level 99 Woodcutting from level 60, and it is going to take you almost 200 hours.

If you aren't looking to 3 tick woodcut up to level 99, there are other alternatives!

Levels 60-75 Yew Trees

At level 60 you unlock Yew Logs as a Pay to Play player. Members can cut Yew Trees at Catherby or at Tree Gnome Village. Both of these are very close to a bank. Take note that the GP and the XP per hour is really, really crap for Yew Logs, and you only be making about 60 000 GP per hour, and 30 000 XP per hour. Getting to level 99 from level 60 Woodcutting with Yew Logs, you are going to make yourself 67000 Logs or 23000000 coins.

Levels 75-99 Magic Trees

At level 75, Pay to Play players unlock Magic Trees, and this is where you start really making a profit. You make about 120000 GP per hour. But, the XP rates are even slower than Yew Trees, averaging around only 25000 XP per hour. You should only cut these if you really, really want to make some AFK money. You will make 47000 Magic Logs getting to level 99 Woodcutting, and that is 4600 000 profit getting to level 99.
