The Spinebeam branches (Tier 5) is an item that can only be obtained while Dungeoneering. They may be purchased from the Smuggler, received as a monster drop, or cut from a Spinebeam tree, requiring level 40 Woodcutting. This is the highest tier of branches available to free players, and provides the most Woodcutting experience per branch cut. These are the 2nd best experience for free players, following yew trees with a difference of 30 experience.
Cutting spinebeam branches grants 145 Woodcutting experience for each branch cut. A player may receive between 1 and 6 branches from each spinebeam tree, after which it is depleted and no further branches can be obtained.

After cutting the branches, they can be burned using a tinderbox, requiring level 40 Firemaking and granting 112.6 experience. The resulting fire can then be used to cook food. The tier 5 fire has a low chance of burning food. Note that the higher tier the fire is, the lower chance of burning food they have.
These include the Spinebeam shortbow (u) (requiring level 41 Fletching and granting 33 experience), and the Spinebeam longbow (u) (requiring level 46 Fletching and granting 37.9 experience). This experience is doubled if you then attach a bow string to the unstrung bow. Upon stringing the bow, it can be wielded as a Ranged weapon; the shortbow is slightly less accurate but has a faster firing rate, while the longbow has longer range and a slower rate of fire.
Arrow shafts may also be fletched at the rate of 38 arrow shafts per branch used, requiring level 40 Fletching. By attaching feathers and arrowtips, it is possible to fletch arrows that can be used in Ranged combat. Note that all arrow shafts produced are the same, regardless of the tier of branches they are produced from. The tier of branches used only affects the number of arrow shafts received from each branch.
Those players who wish to use Magic in combat may choose to fletch the Spinebeam staff, which will raise the player's Magic attack bonus when wielded. Fletching this staff requires level 48 Fletching and grants 59.4 experience.
Finally, the branches can be made into a Spinebeam trap, requiring level 43 Fletching and granting 79.2 experience. This can be placed using the Hunter skill, and is used to trap a bovimastyx. Out of all the items that can be made from these branches, the trap also grants the most Fletching experience per branch used, making it potentially the most useful for training the Fletching skill within Daemonheim.
