Maple trees are amber-coloured trees that require a Woodcutting level of 45 to be cut down and grant 100 Woodcutting experience per maple log.
As with most other trees that can give more than one log, maple trees have a 1 in 8 chance of depleting per log chopped. Each maple tree takes 35 seconds to respawn.
The most popular place to cut maple trees is in Seers' Village, along with many other trees. It is very convenient to cut them here due to there being maples found both north and south of the bank. Another convenient place to chop maples is at the Hosidius house in Zeah; again, there is a bank in close proximity to the trees and fewer people choose to train there.
Extra experience per log cut in Seers' Village can be earned upon the completion of the Medium Kandarin Diary.
Maple trees were made available to free-to-play with the introduction of Corsair Cove.
Levels 45-99 – Maple trees Maple logs At level 45, players have the option of switching to maple trees, which grant 100 experience per log.
Expect to see approximately one-third less woodcutting xp/h compared to willow trees, however these are significantly more afk due to their slower chop speed.
The only place where free-to-play players can chop maple trees is the Corsair Cove Resource Area, which contains 4 maple trees, and requires beginning the The Corsair Curse quest* and completion of Dragon Slayer to enter.
Starting experience - 61,512 Experience needed - 12,972,919 Maple logs needed - 129,730 (12,973,000 experience) *(Note that completion of The Corsair Curse is required to unlock the bank at Corsair Cove.)
