All packages of trunks with realistic-looking "dead branches", an intricate desert plant material, wooden "planting pins", and instructions. You can use hot glue, Super Tacky glue, and/or drill holes in the trunk and add the dead branches for an added effect (e.g. make a dead "snag" tree).

Considering making your own style of fir tree using Caspia or furnace filter? Try our tapered cedar trunks, which will save the time and effort you'd spend whittling away on hardwood dowels. Have extra trunks from a kit you purchased earlier? Get a bit of extra foliage to go with. Going for a larger forest and want reduced packaging and bulk savings? We have trunks in bulk and full sheets 16x24 inches of the Green Branches Foliage Material we make right here. Our hope is to compliment your creativity with scenery supplies to match.
Bark Detail Texture added to Port Orford Cedar Trunks (aka "Old Growth")
Used in conjunction with our All New Green Branches, you can quickly and easily produce your very own old-growth trees for spectacular drama.
For making the trunks, we actually use two types of wood, as follows:
Port Orford or White Cedar
Softer material permits excellent bark detail
Available in larger diameters like 5/16, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, and 15/16 inches
This is the best material for making what I consider "Old Growth Trees"; big, heavy old trees
Port Orford Cedar wood has a low hardness rating and easily accepts bark detail texture engraved with wire wheels (done here). Also, white cedar absorbs water-based dyes well (also done here).
Any trunks labelled "Old Growth" are made from this cedar wood.
This is the best material for making what I consider "Old Growth Trees" - big, heavy old trees!
Tougher than cedar
Used on 6" and 8" sizes only
Stock material is available in only in one diameter, 3/16 inch
This harder material makes it better suited for smaller trees with finer detail at the top.
At 3/16" diameter, they are also thin. I consider these more representative of a tree with a "second growth" appearance, in HO scale.
Any trunks labelled "Second Growth" are made from bamboo.
