Willow branch detail.png

A willow branch is an item received while pruning a willow tree grown by a player. To obtain willow branches, use secateurs or magic secateurs on a willow tree which has been planted on a tree patch using the Farming skill. No experience is gained from this.

Cutting branches is only possible after checking the health of the tree. Once its health is checked, a branch can be cut every 5 minutes or you have the option of leaving the tree after checking its health and later coming back to cut them all at once. The player has the option of cutting up to six branches at once after a waiting period of 30 minutes. It is possible to cut seven branches at the same tree; it would require the player to cut at least one branch off of the tree and have another branch immediately take its place. This allows a player to collect up to 12 branches per hour from each tree, and with five available tree patches, up to 60 per hour total, which, in turn, means approximately 184,440 coins an hour.

Instances of up to 34 branches being collected in one retrieval have been recorded, though the occurrence of this event is unpredictable; it is unknown as to whether this is a glitch or not. It has been observed with both magic secateurs and regular secateurs.

Players may also receive willow branches from opening a box of summoning ingredients, a possible reward from the Familiarisation Distraction and Diversion. Two branches is a possible loot from a spirit impling jar.


Six willow branches can be used to create a fruit basket on a loom, requiring level 56 Crafting. The willow branch is a tertiary ingredient in giant ent pouches, requiring level 78 Summoning to create. 12 branches are also needed during the quest Enlightened Journey.
