Willow seed detail

A willow seed may be grown into a Willow tree using the Farming skill. Planting it in a plant pot using a trowel will turn it into a Willow seedling, which will turn into a willow sapling when watered. The willow sapling can then be planted in a tree patch. Players must have level 30 Farming to do this.

Once fully grown, use secateurs on the tree to cut willow branches. The tree may be cut down, as usual, granting 67.5 Woodcutting experience points per willow logs. After it is cut down, it will eventually regrow; however, it is also possible to use a spade on the tree stump to cut tree roots, yielding the player some willow roots and make the tree patch available for planting a new tree.

The willow tree will take 4 hours to become fully grown, depending on whether or not the tree becomes diseased in the process of growing. Even if a farmer is paid to watch a tree, it may still become diseased. The farmer will immediately cure the tree, but the tree will take longer to grow.

A Willow seed may be obtained from the Vinesweeper minigame for 1,800 points. It may also be obtained by searching a bird's nest, or by looting Nature implings, and it is also a common reward from the Distractions and Diversions Evil Tree.
