Spirit trees are a gnomic method of transportation. Players gain access to the network when you complete the Tree Gnome Village quest. If you have finished The Grand Tree quest players can teleport from the Spirit Tree in there without completing Tree Gnome Village quest, however you will not be able to teleport back to there from other trees.
Clicking on a spirit tree brings up a dialogue:
One of the fastest ways to access a spirit tree is to teleport to Mobilising Armies and then use the spirt tree just outside of where you teleport. Alternatively, if you have an Ardougne Cape, teleport to the Monastery and use the Khazard Battlefield tree just to the west. This doesn't use up your teleport runes.
Evil Tree is a part of Distractions and Diversions, released on 25 February 2009. This event can be done twice a day and helps players train their Woodcutting, Firemaking, and Farming skills. Waves of trees appear every two hours; between waves, no trees will appear.
Players who have completed Tree Gnome Village can find out where a tree is by talking to a spirit tree for a hint. The spirit tree north-east of the Grand Exchange is the easiest to access because of its proximity to the Exchange. If there are no Evil Trees sprouting, the spirit trees will not provide any hints.
On 17 March 2009 the Spirit trees were given the ability to tell players approximately how long it would be until the next Evil Tree.
Do you wish to travel, or do you wish to ask about the evil tree?
Do you wish to travel, or are you interested in the strange sapling? (lasts until the sapling is nurtured through 3 growth stages)
Do you wish to travel, or are you here to help dispatch the evil tree?
Spirit trees are grown just as any other farming tree, with the exception that each player may have only one spirit tree planted in just one of the three patches at any one time. To move a Spirit Tree's location or simply to plant a newly acquired seed requires that the existing tree be removed first.
The growing time for a Spirit Tree is about 61 hours and 20 minutes, or 2.5 days. However, growing a Spirit Tree yields 19,500 farming experience which is divided between planting xp (1%) and check health xp (99%).
Spirit trees cannot be cut down so one simply uses a spade on the tree to remove it. Spirit Trees do not yield roots when removed.
Since Spirit Tree seeds are not a tradeable item players rarely encounter them. They are obtained (very rarely) as rewards, whether from bird nests, as an Evil Tree reward, or as production from managing their kingdom after completing the Royal Trouble quest. A more reliable source is Mrs. Winkin who will sell players a Spirit Tree seed for 55,000 vinesweeper points.
Spirit trees may be tended by gnome gardeners for 5 Monkey nuts, 1 Monkey bar, and 1 Ground tooth. Given the rarity of the seed and the length of time it takes to mature, having a gardener tend the growing plant is strongly recommended. Players are now animated when planting spirit trees as of 9 November 2009.
There is no possible way of being able to grow this tree using the assist system. However, a player is able to plant it using farming boosts, as early as level 77 with a spicy stew. It is recommended that the player also brings a compost mound to raise their farming again if the spicy stew lowers it.
Once matured, a farmed Spirit Tree will appear as an option for travel via the Gnome Spirit Tree network (see above).

The Great Spirit Tree, also called the Great Tree or Spirit Tree, was an ancient tree on the forest moon of Endor which was sacred to the local Ewoks. They believed that they were all descended from the Great Tree. It was also believed that all life eventually returned to the Spirit Tree.
