It's OK Jos, just teasing you. Don't know if we have that variety of Pine here, but if we see a reddish brown on the trunks etc of ours it usually means a fungal disease. Can kill trees pretty quickly.

You know something ... something I just don't understand?

Why are you guys NOT selling your tree's? You make virtually every commercial manufacturer of tree's look like amateurs. The definition, realism is uncanny and nothing short of amazing. Where can I place an order? :)

Tony..I do sell some of my trees....:D .
BUT post/shipping is very expensive and preparing the box(es) in which the trees have to survive during their journey is very time consuming, Mostly people order not just one tree. And yes you can/may order some trees...:)
Besides that..it is still one of my hobbies and yes I am starting to think about my own "company"....a small one but one that tries to make - as a start-realistic trees in H0 and N. scale .

I can appreciate the time and effort that you give in making your tree's, that alone would be worth the money. I didn't know you sold your tree's so my question about placing an order was a hypothetical one. Now I know you do sell them, that question ceases to be hypothetical :)

Are you able to replicate any tree or are you restricted by the availability of product to produce your tree's? My reason for asking is I would love to get some Australian Gum Tree's.

Hello Tony,

Are you able to replicate any tree or are you restricted by the availability of product to produce your tree's?
yes I can the only restriction(s) are my own "craftmanship"....
But Australian gumtrees can be "easily" made out of branches of the flowers of Sedum spectabile!
I would start with watching on the internet how the look like - in general!!! 'cause there are sooo many gum trees!!!) and reading for example this:
