There are times when a Strange sapling will be growing near a hoard of trees. This sapling is actually the notorious Evil tree and it's come to avenge its slaughtered brethren! Do you have the courage to face it?
Finding an Evil tree can be pretty challenging, but there are ways to get around that. Players who have completed the Tree Gnome Village quest may speak with the Spirit tree. It will offer you various clues, hints, and direct teleports to the Evil tree (when fully grown). Another good way to track them down is to join a group of friends or clanmates. The Evil tree is confined to 25 spawn locations, so it narrows down your search. These locations are:
- Lleyta (near the area with the Magic trees).
- Tree Gnome Stronghold.
- Draynor Village (willow trees near the bank and dead trees to the north).
- McGrubor's Wood.
- Catherby (west of the bank and near the yew trees).
- Seers' Village (north of the bank).
- North-east of Varrock, by the Soul rift.
- In the jungle, north of Shilo Village.
- Hemenster, near the south-west wall of the Rangers' Guild.
- North-west of the Rangers' Guild.
- North of Varrock Castle (near the yews).
- Trees that surround the mine north of Shilo Village.
- South-east of Rellekka, near the singing tree.
- South of the Monastery (near the body altar).
- West of Oo'glog, amongst the Eucalyptus trees.
- North-west/south of the Legends' Guild, by the Willow trees.
- Southern part of Ape Atoll.
- North of Tyras Camp, by the catapult.
- West of Lumbridge Castle, near the caravan.
- East of Jorral's house, north-west of Ardougne.
- North-west of Brimhaven Dungeon.
- Yanille, outside the eastern entrance leading into the city.
- Yanille, outside the western doors leading into the city.
- West of Falador, by the Taverley mine.
- On the southern coast of the Kharazi jungle.
If you have any information regarding the spawn locations, then please submit a correction about them.
When the Evil Tree is freed from its roots you can set fires with the kindlings, as said, or simply use your axe to hack into the tree's bark. Either way of damaging the tree requires certain Woodcutting or Firemaking levels, as shown in the table below. The Farming requirement represents the level needed to speed up the growing process from a sapling.
|Tree type||Farming Level||Firemaking Level||Woodcutting Level|
After the five growth stages are completed, the Evil Tree will show it's true nature. At this point, hacking the roots away with an axe will become necessary. If you don't have an axe, then you may ask the wandering tool leprechaun for one. Before being able to harm the evil tree, one must hack away the roots guarding it. These roots will appear in your inventory as kindling and they can be used to set the tree on fire (with the aid of a tinderbox, of course). Once the roots are taken down, you can either chop at the tree with your axe or simply set it ablaze.
On top of the experience earned for dealing with the Evil tree, you will be able to take certain rewards from the Fallen Tree. Rewards include noted logs of the Evil Tree's type, tree seeds, bird's nests and random items such as key halves, gold or even Treasure Trail clue scrolls!
Added to that, you will also receive a temporary Woodcutting ability that makes your logs automatically go to your bank if your inventory is full. This ability lasts five to thirty minutes and only affects normal, oak, willow, maple, yew and magic trees. The chance of the tree being felled is also significantly reduced, which should make training more efficient. Note that this will not work on trees you have grown yourself; however, logs will still be escorted to your bank. The table below shows the amount of logs and coins recieved from the various evil trees.
A: JaGex has stated that you can only do the Evil tree twice a day. To avoid waiting around for another tree to pop up, you can always hop worlds.
