Wilfred is a non-player character who is found among the trees north of Falador in a members world. He sells the Woodcutting cape along with the hood (for 99,000 coins) for members who have achieved level 99 in Woodcutting.
- He provided information to players about basic and advanced Woodcutting and Firemaking, depending on the player's skill levels. A level up message would tell the player when new information from him was available.
- He provided a free bronze hatchet to any player who did not own a hatchet, and a tinderbox to any player who did not have one. Players can now obtain these items for free from shops in Lumbridge instead.
- Wilfred also used to provide Jobs for players. These were not too popular among higher levels, but many level 3 skillers would use this for the experience lamp rewards given after 15 completed jobs. This lamp gave the player experience in the amount of 25 times the player's level in the chosen skill.
- After the Random event update Jagex forgot to remove him saying to beware of the Tree spirit. They were long gone, and Jagex removed that the same day they moved him to Falador.
- The term "A chip off the old block" refers to some one being identical to their parent/guardian, yet there is no proof of Wilfred being like his parents/guardians, but this is just a play on words referring to a chip off of a woodcutting block.
