Thanks Chris,

This morning I started and finished 4 of those "fasttrees"
...


This time no turf but sieved NOCH leaves.....
So these trees could be the ones that you can find/see in backyards or parks planted just 2 or 3 years ago....

There are trees in New England which look a lot like your pine models, but they're spruces and firs. Their range is mostly from the White Mountains north into Canada.

The tall conifers on the left look like Black Spruce to me, particularly the dying lower branches. Excellent! Those on the right are harder to give a species name to, but the needles below the main branch remind me of Balsam Fir. My first comment was written that way because I know trees in New England much better than anywhere else, and have never visited a European forest which wasn't planted.

They look great Jos! Reminds me of the gnarly trees growing on the shoreline and of summer. Nice to see that you have some clear skies in Netherlands. I haven't seen the sun now for nearly a month. Downcast every day[:-indifferent]

They look just like the wind blown trees on the Washington coast. If it wasn't for the foam base I'd say they are real. Well done Jos.
