Maple seed detail.png

Maple seeds are an item used in the Farming skill to grow a maple tree, which gives maple logs when harvesting it with a hatchet. Growing a maple tree requires 45 farming.

To grow a maple tree, players must first plant a maple seed in a soil filled plant pot, water the seedling with a watering can, wait (at most) 5 minutes and the plant will grow into a Maple sapling.

After planting the sapling in a tree patch and waiting for it to fully grow, which takes 5 hours and 20 minutes, the plant will grow into a Maple tree. Planting the Maple sapling yields 45 exp, and checking the health gives you 3403. This comes to a total of 3448 experience per Maple tree.

When cut down, the tree will automatically regrow after a period of time. Alternatively, it can be dug up using a spade or by paying the gardener a small fee, yielding some maple roots in the process.
