Do you happen to have any names or sources for the similar to super trees ones?

Look for "Candy Tuft" from Michael's. Comes in various colors, and "natural" looks the best. They also have a number of potentially useful random scenic materials; one thing they have called a "pot topper" has what looks like large bunches of Silflor tufts for a buck and change, IIRC. Also look for "Supermoss", sheets of dried moss that might make good ground cover.

If you are doing "big" trees, you must straighten out the supertree material.  They include a photo of hanging them wet upside down.  You can also creatively cut and splice them together.
