I've been trying to figure out why branches won't grow on my trees for a while, and all of the online discussions seem to center around making sure the tree's health has been checked, which is not the issue I'm apparently having. I've been completely unable to acquire tree branches on my account due to what seems like a bug, but one I can't find any accounts of online.

Relevant information:
Regular Iron Woman
Farming level is 64
Tools used: Magical Secateurs
Trees attempted: Yew, Maple, Willow

I can chop and dig the trees just fine, and get xp as usual when checking health; The only issue I'm having is an inability to collect their branches, since they apparently never grow.

I’ve only ever attempted to harvest willow branches. Branches respawn 1 per 5 mins, tops out at 6 total I believe. If you chop down the tree, it resets all available branches to 0. Make sure to use the secateurs on the tree. Hope this helps

I’ve definitely used my magic secateurs on my personally grown willow tree in order to harvest willow branches. Willow branches are used in a quest and can also be spun into a basket. I can’t remember the name of the hot air balloon quest on entrana, maybe you have to start that quest before you can harvest willow branches?

@Ore Sabre - yes, that's how branches are meant to be harvested, according to all sources I've checked.

@1eet 1egend - My first ever planted tree was the willow given by the monk on Entrana, and that quest was what brought my attention to this issue; I'd never tried harvesting branches before I needed them for that quest.
