Crystal trees are a rare and unusual species of tree found in specific locations around Gielinor. The crystal formations that grow around them can only be cut with at least level 94 Woodcutting, and can only be chopped when a tree is "active". Only one tree will be active at a time, remaining that way for a set time before another tree becomes active.

If you find an inactive crystal tree, right-click the tree to look at it - it will lean in the direction of the currently active tree. Cutting crystal formations yields no resources, but you will get 434.5 Woodcutting XP for a successful cut. You may also receive a crystal geode which can contain gems, a crystal triskelion fragment, or a crystal seed if you have completed the Roving Elves quest.

Crystal trees can be grown from crystal acorns in the crystal tree patch in Prifddinas. They differ from normal trees in that they do not require the seedling/sapling stage and instead act more like bushes when grown. To grow the tree you must plant an acorn directly into the crystal tree patch and the tree should immediately start to grow.

Once grown, the tree will grow a crystal tree blossom once every 24 hours (from each time it is picked). You cannot store multiple blossoms. Harvesting a blossom grants 15,000 Farming XP.

The tree does not get diseased and once planted doesn't need to be cut down, it will continue to provide a blossom once every 24 hours.

Checking the health of your crystal tree will grant 50,000 Farming XP.


Crystal trees grow in seven locations around Gielinor.

You can also grow your own in Prifddinas.


  • Using certain items on a crystal tree will produce hidden messages...
  • The locations of the crystal trees form a rough diamond shape, including the one that can be grown in Prifddinas. The diamond is the symbol of Seren, who is connected to the crystals used by elves.
  • When examined it points to the selected crystal tree. When you examine the correct tree it states, "This tree points to the heavens."
