I make mine from scratch, if you PM me with your email address I will send you instructions on how I make mine and the materials you will need. The main problem you will have to make the ones exactly like mine is the needles are not available to for sale retail here normally, only wholesale. I have a source but I have to buy them in large lots to get them delivered and there is a minimum dollar amount for an order, $250.00 USD from my supplier, so it is not easy to get the foliage that I use.
There are also lots of different hobby craft and model shops for model trains and military model shops online that sell different kits to make all types of trees, some are much more life-like then others but they are much less time consuming to make then starting from wire, clay, paint and natural and artificial foliage.
Here are two photos of some pines in a small diorama I've done, the larger trees are about 30 inches tall[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
