Dead trees are trees that act as interactive scenery. They have a different look than normal trees, though they usually act the same. They require level one Woodcutting to cut and give normal logs. Some at Draynor Manor and the Haunted Woods attack unsuspecting players if they walk up beside them, causing up to 30 life points of damage, but if you look closely, after doing Animal Magnetism, they are called Undead trees. Unlike normal trees their examine reveals that they are "only good for firewood now", but you also may make planks, unstrung bows and arrow shafts with the logs cut from them, and quests that ask for logs, such as Tree Gnome Village, also will accept these.

- West Ardougne
- Edgeville (after Ritual of the Mahjarrat)
- The dead tree, when cut, offers the same logs as a normal tree, and therefore, burns like a normal tree's log would. In real life, because the tree is dead the logs would burn quicker than a living tree because there is water and greenery in the normal tree.
- There is an inaccessible dead tree with a chop option south of Gu'Tanoth.
- A regular tree behind the building with anvils in Yanille was removed in a hidden update. After a thread on the Runescape forums, it was added back as a dead tree a week later with the examine text: "Never let Mod Timbo near a thing of beauty". Its stump's examine text reads: "Tiiiimmmmmmbbbbooooooooooo!"
- Supposedly, Mod Timbo uprooted the tree in Yanille to be placed in his dressing room, but after many complaints he had decided to return it to its original position in Yanille but had 'mismanaged' it when it was in his possession.[ ]
