Scott, I think you got the hang of it. I think it's like a lot of other things, the more you do the better they look. I am pretty happy with this method and happy to share. The Bottle brush trees mixed in look like a good combination.

Not sure what Scott used for the lower branches, but I have used the same material, just trimmed a bit more. You could use caspia or even a short piece of rope fiber.

The lower branches are just some broken branches from a piece of sage brush I picked up a while back. However, they could be anything from almost any shrub in the yard - sticks is sticks. Scott

Scott, your trees are very well done, and in particular, the furnace filter ones are particularly convincing, something I have never really been able to master. Congrats!

Thanks to all. The big trees are about(?) 18" tall with trunks whittled down to about 3/8 to 1/2 inch diameter. The truck in the picture is about 3.5 -4 " long. Scott

I made a few more (12) furnace filter trees to replace some foreground trees that were bottle brush type. This corner of the peninsula is the transition between the town of Valjean and the "into the woods" area. The little "caboose" is a "Chievers" model I had sitting on my bench for a long time and decided to finish. Scott

Scott,
Very nice indeed, I like the big trees and your technique is excellent. (envious look on my face) The scene really looks good and I bett seeing the local run thru it is a thrill.
