Maple logs detail

Maple logs are logs obtained from cutting maple trees, which require at least 45 Woodcutting to cut. They give 100 Woodcutting experience when cut.


Maple trees can be found around Seers' Village, accessible to any member, and on the Daemonheim Woodcutting island, which requires 30 Dungeoneering and is accessible to all players.

To go from level 45 to 60 Woodcutting, at which point one can cut yew logs, would require 2,123 maple logs to be cut, with a profit of 48,829 coins at current Grand Exchange prices. To go from 45 to 99 Woodcutting would require 129,730 maple logs to be cut, yielding a profit of 2,983,790 coins at current Grand Exchange prices. Level 45 to 200 million experience would require 1,999,385 maple logs, giving 45,985,855 coins.

A single inventory of maple logs gives 2,800 experience, and can be sold for 644 coins on the Grand Exchange.

Noted maple logs can sometimes be found inside barrels. They may also be dropped (in noted form) by Rorarius, Dagannoth Supreme or Demon Flash Mobs.


Using the Fletching skill allows members to turn maple logs into Ranged weapons. Unstrung shortbows can be made at 50 Fletching, giving 50 experience per bow. Maple stocks can be made at level 54, for 32 experience. Unstrung shieldbows can be made at level 55, giving 58.3 experience per bow. Stringing the bows with a bowstring gives the same amount of experience as making them. Adding a mithril limb to a maple stock grants 64 experience, and makes an unstrung mithril crossbow.

Maple logs can be burned by all players using the Firemaking skill, giving 135 experience at level 45 Firemaking and scaling up to 175 experience on a 5-person bonfire at level 99. Maple log fires stay lit for 3 and a half minutes, regardless of the amount of logs added. Maple logs can be burned using Barbarian Firemaking but level 65 Firemaking is required to use this method. Burning maple logs in this fashion gives the same Firemaking experience as burning maple logs with a tinderbox. Maple logs can also be used to make pyre ships and pyre logs.

Because of their low price and the moderate experience they provide, maple logs are commonly used for training Firemaking, where one can spend about 2,210,208 coins to get from level 45 to 99 Firemaking. This uses about 96,096 logs or less if practised on bonfires.

Maple logs serve a use in the Divination skill where they can be transmuted into yew logs.

Some players will occasionally alchemise the outputs from fletching maple logs. Doing this at current prices would yield a net worth change of -159 per maple shieldbow.

Price historyEdit

Maple Fire

A maple log fire.

Prior to the release of the Grand Exchange, maple logs had a street price of about 100 coins each. When the Grand Exchange was introduced, there was an influx of hundreds of thousands of maple logs obtained from Miscellania that were all thrust into the market at once. This massive oversupply caused maple logs to drop to the low price of under 50 coins each.

With the 2 September 2009 personalised shop update, minimum price limits on many items including unstrung maple longbows were removed. Before, players would buy maples at around 36 - 42 coins each and fletch them into unstrung maple longbows. They would then be widely traded as junk with other players, along with other unwanted fletching products. The unstrung longbows were worth 144 coins each, but after the shop update, they fell to 64 coins each. The logs in turn suffered a fall to 28 coins. There is an underlying demand for unstrung maple longbows, as they still have some training value.

The 1st February 2011 free trade update caused the amount of bots to increase, in turn causing the efficiency of gathering logs to decrease per player. This sudden decrease of supply increased the price of maple logs to over 90 coins.

In September 2011, a Bonus XP Weekend was announced and players began selling maple logs, since demand was anticipated. This sudden oversupply caused price decrease, and other players seeing the drop, delayed buying the logs, leading to a lack of demand. As the Bonus XP Weekend would arrive in a few days, players guessed that prices would continue to drop, and they could then buy their logs for less.
