Old School RuneScape (OSRS) offers a wide array of activities for players to engage in, from combat to skilling. One of the most rewarding and tranquil skilling activities is woodcutting, and for those looking to maximize their woodcutting experience, redwood trees are an excellent choice. In this comprehensive guide, we will delve into everything you need to know about chopping redwood trees in OSRS, from where to find them to the best strategies for efficient woodcutting.
Locating Redwood Trees
Before you can start chopping redwood trees, you need to know where to find them. Redwood trees are scattered throughout the Hosidius House in the Kourend region of Gielinor. Specifically, you can locate these massive trees in the Woodcutting Guild, which requires a Woodcutting level of 90 to access. To get to the guild, players must first complete the quest “Client of Kourend” and then pay a small fee.
To make your redwood woodcutting experience as efficient as possible, it’s crucial to have the right equipment. Here’s what you’ll need:
Your choice of axe matters. A higher-tier axe will increase your woodcutting speed. The best axe you can use for redwoods is the dragon or infernal axe, but the rune or dragon axe will also suffice.
2. Bird’s Nest:
Carrying a bird’s nest in your inventory is essential, as redwood trees have a chance to drop redwood tree seeds, which are valuable. The bird’s nest can potentially provide you with extra seeds.
3. Weight-Reducing Gear:
Reducing your weight with equipment like the graceful set or similar items will make it easier to run back to the bank, increasing your efficiency.
