Terrain- Trees

My Woodland scenics trees are staring tog et a bit battered. I made these tree bases 5-6 years ago and they have seen a lot of use but over time are starting to show wear and tear (they look good but are are quite fragile). I have taken the battered woodland scenic trees off and replacement the with some pine trees I picked up on Trademe a couple of years ago.

I have to at some point make bases for the woodland scenics ones as well.

I usually put 3-4 clumps of trees with some lichen to denote a forested area.


  1. I'm not a fan of those paper style trees but they do look pretty nifty on the bases and I imagine they can take a lot of wear before looking ratty.

  2. There main saving grace is that they were cheap, and have proved to be surprisingly sturdy (have been thrown about into various terrain boxes over the years without taking any major damage- unlike the Woodland scenics ones). To improve them I've been considering flocking them with woodlands scenics grasses- has worked well on hedges in the past and might make them look better
