To begin hacking the jungle, you first need to talk with Murcaily. He'll tell you that you need to wield a form of machete, to hack away at the jungle. There are three types of jungles: light jungle (level-10), medium jungle (level-20) and dense jungle (level-30). From every fully grown jungle you chop, you get four thatch spars.

Jungle Type Experience Gained Favour Gained
Light Jungle 32 Woodcutting XP 1
Medium Jungle 55 Woodcutting XP 1
Dense Jungle 81 Woodcutting XP 1





Repair Fences
