Here are some N scale results of scotch pinetrees...
They are about max. 4 inches high( max 9 cm)

same technic as the HO trees.....
I used the fine light filterfibers to imm. the small branches.
the Leaves/needles are made of sieved( kitchensieve not a theesieve ) coarse turf- color weeds- from WS.

Planted the N sized ( scotch) pinetrees on a very small diorama...
btw: the axe is not real..it's a fake one. So the tree won't be cut/tsjopped down

and one from the front:

Love it, Jos! I especially like the foliage/bushes spilling over down the slope.

Thanks Munch!

That was the easiest part!!!!:
Just throw some coarse turf in a small cup or something like that and add some deluted white glue to it and mix it together . just be carefull! don't add to much deluted whiteglue! The turf just has to suck up the glue so it must not flowe in it!
Take tweezer and add the "soupe"on the place you want!

Very realistic landscape, Jos. It's really hard to tell if it is a model or reality, especially since vegetation has this well spaced look that is often difficult to emulate on a model.

We cannot beat mother nature!!!
Just want you to show that a natural trunk of a boxtree(? ( Buxes sempervirens). mostly the base of it, as a start to try to make an old olivetree in scale 1:72
As a gardener I can choose wich one(s!!) have to be removed in gardens...lol[:-angel]
of course NOT in my own garden...
Pealed off the bark and this is the result after drying some weeks:

finally caught up to the end of this thread and your trees are amazing!. I'm planning on trying to make a few but I can't find the aquarium polyfiber. It seems that the only filter material available in my area is the direct drop-in replacements with carbon in the filter (I could grind the carbon and make coal). I have found a fur material made of polyester that could be trimmed.
