Hi Dave
I'm sure these aren't store-bought, commercially available tress, but are hand made by the modeller. Usually, these are custom made for each diorama.

Here's a couple of 'how to' articles from right here on Armorama....

No problem buddy, you're welcome!

Here's what I did...if you go to the search box in the top right, click the little button marked armorama.com to search just here and not throughout all of google, type in "building trees" or "making trees" and click "search", you'll possibly find some more articles from just Armorama on how to do this.

Well lookie that.... who knew? Thanks!

I figured someone had to make some custom stuff, but I thought it would be pretty expensive. Have you ever ordered from them or used their product? They look really nice.... I wonder about their product line for 1/35th scale military models...
