Runescape 2007 OldScape Woodcutting Leveling up Guide and Tips 1-99
In this guide I will talk about how to train the skill Woodcutting to the most effective manner to save you time and make you more money in the shortest time. This is one of the most popular money maker stats so I will show you how to train this the most effective way to make you a decent amount of money.
Feel free to share in the comments your way of skilling, suggestions or tips you'd like to share, or just chat. Also you can message me directly on Runescape @ 12john.
Also I am on twitter @Johnrr631992 if you would like to follow to stay in tough, and keep up with all the runescape guides I will be posting over time.
So obviously early levels you will need to do trees. I suggest you do trees until you hit level 20. Go into the woods away from people with a knife, and every log cut these into arrow shafts. If you come back later and get feathers you will make decent profit, and will be able to flip them fairly easily. While you are woodcutting the trees I would suggest using a bronze axe as this is really all you need to cut these trees, and will be effective until level 20 ish. Once you hit around 20 I would suggest moving on to oaks.
Once you hit level 20 or higher and you move to oaks I suggest using a steel ace. This will be more effective on these trees and gives you a higher success rate. I also suggest using the oak trees right outside of Varrock West bank. In this area you will be able to cut the logs, and store them in the bank nearby, or fletch them and store the pieces in the bank. This is the easiest way, and there are usually no high level woodcutters here to steal your place and your trees. I suggest staying at oaks until level 40, or until you can use a mithril hatchet before moving to willows. The willow trees I have seen are highly competitive and you will have more success and luck at oaks.
When you are going to move to willows I highly suggest using the best axe that you can. I would also wait until 35+ before moving to willows. While they will yield more money, I think that the oaks chop faster, and will give you much more success overall. So I recommend staying on oaks as long as possible.
With that being said willows will provide more money so once you do move to willows I suggest either finding somewhere that is not competitive, or try using Draynor Village. This location has been extremely busy, and a lot of players are here.
Above level 50
Once you hit level 50 you are from from halfway to 99 xp wise, but level wise you are halfway there. So congrats so far. Now that you have made it to 50 lets talk trees.
Personally I suggest staying at Willows until about 55, BUT if you want to make the move to Maples then take your path to Seers village. This is an extremely popular woodcutting spot, and will get you high enough until you can go after yews. This is a popular spot, and the best spot for maples. Maples are 100 XP each, and will yield a decent profit, and will also boost your fletching if that's what your looking for. I suggest spending a lot of time here until you want to move to yews, but I suggest doing maples from 55-65 as this will allows you the experience and money that comes from maples, but will not send you to yews right away and will build you skill up.
When you are going to move to Yews I suggest waiting until level 65 as said above, and then I would go right for yews. These are bringing in good money right now, and will continue to bring in good money for all the fletchers that are out there. I would highly suggest doing this until you can do magics, and then once again moving right along. The yews I personally save for my own fletching, but you can also sell them very easily on the forums or on a trading world.
Move to magic at your own time, but I personally would move right to magic at 75. while you will have a low success rate, and will take a while to get your logs, your best chance of money making comes from magic logs, so I highly suggest moving to these as quickly as possible. This will give you the most money for you buck and help you make the most money for your effort.

So overall pace yourself for the long haul if your going for 99. Try to use the best axe you can, and don't go to the willows at 30, and maples at 45 and so on.. Wait until you pass it a couple levels, and while the reward might be a little better, overall you will have better success, and the levels will go by quicker. Also remember if you are trying to knock two birds out with 1 stone then mix the woodcutting with either fletching or firemaking to save yourself time and effort.
