<< I'm searching for a supplier of
reasonably priced ready made trees that look really good...any
High Pines Limited makes really great Pine or Fur trees at about 85 cents
each in bulk. I respray some of my trees with spray cans of various green
colors to get a varied effect. My close modeling friend (he's here on the
list) reflocks his trees with his special mixture of WS foams to make trees
that are as close to prototype as I have seen - maybe he will share his
methods with us here!
Oaky Doky Oaks makes super Oak trees. They run from $5 to $10 in HO
depending on size (and up to $30 for a giant O scale Oak) but they can be
mixed in with WS Oak trees and scratch built "sage brush trunk" trees for a
very realistic overall effect.
- "manzanita as a tree form?", sounds like you've got something there.
Carry on. Here in Colorado we only gots sagebrush, and other weeds, to work
with, but zillions and zillions of them.

Speaking of trees (re: sagebrush as the form) - has anybody looked at
manzanita as a tree form? The tips of the branches generally have multiple
forks, and would do well for oaks or some orchard trees, and the more vertical
bits are a natural for madrones, since the bark is similar.
