For my taste Ginkgo is the best:
1) it looks good;
2) it looks more or less generic and thus could fit different zoogeographic displays (East and South Asia, N./S. America, even Europe). While the Cycad tree couldn't be placed in Europe or N. America.

Yeah, and that is great! Trees are somehow overlooked by major brands, and it's good to have a choice.
I wish Safari introduced more modern trees, apart from the new prehistoric ones.

I also purchased this tree. It's really a nice model. My only complaint is that it's a bit tougher to assemble than the Schleich trees. It's a fight to get some of the foliage onto the branches. I suppose it's not too big of a deal. It probably won't dissuade me from buying the cycad in the future.

You're right. But it has its good side: the more canopy parts - the more realistic a tree is looking.

Greetings,

I'm also interested in the mysterious third tree an I hope it will be released.

There is a german shop who also sells CollectA dinosaurs: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Here I got my trees, the Gingko and the Cycadee. You can also find the shop on amazon.

And I have found a belgian homepage: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

P.S. The trees came in the same boxes as on the pictures, but not in Russian language.

That's a great tree, Kirill. ... Maybe the same or even better than the Schleich Beech Tree? I will definitely add this tree into my collections by next year. bounce bounce bounce
I'd like to return to this topic as I received Schleich beech from MPV the day before yesterday. And I must admit that it's a real masterpiece, the best tree model I ever seen!!! Sad(o)): The beech is definitely better than the Ginkgo.
Look at these two happy collectors:
