This got e-mailed to me in my capacity as a residential architect....  Thought I'd pass it along...

I've already bought bunches from these guys. What's really neat is you can choose a tree type, then select the color of vegetation for it; quite a nice variety of both types and colors. The bamboo is particularly cool.

Nice trees, but kind of expensive, especially of you adhere to Bob Hundman's theory of huge trees for N scale scenes. (He's pretty close to correct about the average size of trees, though.)

Huge trees are neccessary.

However, I'm looking at these to do signature trees, like the ones near structures, etc, because while the supertrees make a good forest, they make crappy trees.

Exactly. I would never make a Sam Tree forest, but I would place them strategically in sub/urban areas. Forest trees have a totally different shape from sub/urban trees anyway.
