There are a lot of unrelated trees that look like pines, trees like cypress, junipers, monkey puzzle trees and redwoods just to name a few. True pines make the typical "pine" cone that we all know, while these others have a seed pod that is scientifically not related. Anyway I was trying to make a weeping willow that I like and I found a preserved foliage that I thought would work. Well the bad news was it didn't, the good news it did work for pine trees and some of the other types I menitoned earlier.


I have made 3 really quickly and the next two I am going to try are a tree fern and a monkey puzzle tree. I have to do a better job of painting the foliage because in the photo I still see some white where the flowers were. I will post when I make some other trees with the same method.

This is a scott's pine that I copied from one done for a model train set, I saw the photo of the live tree and the one on the train layout and decided I really liked the shape. It is windswept and the constant pressure on the trunk causes it to grow like the coastal junipers and cypress that are found along the coast of California near where I grew up.
