Yew seed: Misc

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Yew seeds are the second highest-level tree seed. Players must have level 60 Farming to plant it. (Unless boosts such as a garden pie are used. Players do not need 60 farming to get the experience for checking, just to plant)

The seed, when planted in a Tree patch, may grow into a yew tree, which may be cut down to yield yew logs and grant Woodcutting experience. After it is cut down, it will eventually regrow, however it is also possible to use a spade on the cut tree roots, yielding the player some yew roots and make the tree patch available for planting a new tree.

With level 80 Summoning, a hydra may be used to instantly regrow cut down trees in tree farming patches.

Yew seeds can be bought from the Vinesweeper minigame for 29,000 points per seed by trading with Mrs. Winkin. They may also be obtained from a bird's nest that has dropped from a tree and by going Mole Hunting under Falador Garden.

The farmer will tend a player's yew tree for 10 cactus spines. However, for yew trees, it is much cheaper on average to just use supercompost and not pay the farmers. Only around 1/10 of the yew trees will die.

Planting a Yew seed is also a part of a requirement in your Falador achievement diary, which is to cut down a Yew you grew in the Falador Park.
