    I would like to know what company makes the best pre-made pine trees on the market.
    These pine trees need to be authentic and realistic as well.
    When I say pre-made, I mean all you would have to do is to take them out of the package and put them on your diorama.
    Price really is not a problem right now just as long as they are realistic looking and not toy like!
    Thank you.

    I don't think there are very realistic premade pine trees, out of the box, but I may be wrong :)

    I’m pretty sure you’re right. He’ll have to make his own. Check out this video

    There's one method with preserved asparagus leaves, I tried it in the topic below ;)
    You can do it also with static grass, depending on the type of the tree.

    Hi, Chris, have you thought about Woodland Scenics? They have ready-made pine trees:

    https://woodlandscenics.woodlandscenics.com/show/item/TK23

    and they also have materials if you think about making them yourself.

    The nice thing about Woodland Scenics is that you might find a bricks-and-mortar retailer in your area that carries the brand. Of course, you can order through their website, too.

    Hope that helps, prosit!

    Some very interesting tips here!

    As others mentioned before, I don't know if among the many manufacturers offering premade trees (pines and others), those are realistic enough, so looking for it on YT, specifically for pine trees (not manufactured but DIY instead), I found this one (among others of course) :





    I watched a few of his videos on trees making, and this guy is a real Master doing it, watch his other videos (he has a Playlist for trees making), some are simply amazing!


    Cheers!
