How do you make trees?

I like the make trees article in the Sept issue of MR. I plan make a few
this way to see how they turn out. So how do you make trees? Any body got
some methods to share? How about ideas for mesquite and cottonwood trees?

I have always found that mother nature repeates herself in many scales. A nice way to make a good looking tree is to use tree roots. Find a tree that has fallen over and have a look at the roots, the fine roots look very much like a tree, a little glued on ground foam makes a tree that is quite convincing! I have found that ragweed also produces very nice tree like shapes.

Great site, Lynn. I got a good laugh out of the "Schafft's" beer slogans!
All the best,

I go out to vacant roadside lots after the first frost in fall and cut dead weeds. Often they are used just as is, otherwise I spray them with hair spray and sprinkle on a little colored foram or sawdust.
