    i. Introduction.
    
    
    This is a guide for an online MMORPG called Runescape (www.runescape.com), if 
    you do not know what Runescape is then you are probably reading the wrong 
    guide, try checking the reviews or any of the General FAQS.
    
    Woodcutting is a useful skill to have, it can help with raising firemaking and 
    fletching (fletching is members only) it can also be a good way to make money.
    With the new update free players can use a bigger variety of logs.

    Requires level 1 woodcutting to cut.
    Recomended for level 1-15.
    Can be cut in free game.

    ==Maple==
    
    Cut from maple trees.
    Requires level 45 woodcutting to cut.
    Recomended for level 80-99 woodcutting.
    Can not be cut in free game, however the logs are not members only items.
    Can be sold to other players for 150-200 gp each
    Best place to cut is around seers village bank
    
    ==Yew==
    
    Cut from yew trees.
    Requires level 60 woodcutting to cut.
    Not recomended to cut for XP.
    Can be cut in free game.
    Can be sold to other players for 250-300gp each
    Best place to cut is south of Seers village
    
    ==Magic==
    
    Cut from magic trees.
    Requires level 75 woodcutting to cut.
    Not recomended to cut for XP.
    Can not be cut in free game, the logs are members only items.
    Can be sold to other players for 0.9k-1.2k gp each
    
    
    
    NOTE: for the higher selling prices you will need to get large amounts of
    the logs (usually 1k or more), prices may change
    
    NOTE 2: The recomended levels are the levels at which you will start to get a 
    reasonable amount of logs per attempt to cut. The fastest way to 99 would be
    Normal to level 15, Oak to level 65-70, Willow to level 99. However this would 
    not be the most profitable way, so you need to get the right balance of 
    speed/profit for you.
