The trees I have been using are from a toy called "Toobs". They are made of plastic and are already painted. I mounted them on plastic squares as they tip quite easily. On the Heroscape terrain they tend to take up a lot of room. However, I recently bought some new trees and bushes on Ebay. They are lead so they have weight to them. They are also top heavy, requiring them to be based. However, they are smaller than the Toobs trees so hopefully will work on the Heroscape better.

|A lead tree and "Toobs" tree side by side on Heroscape terrain. I put one of the base edges along one of the hex sides to show how much room the tree base takes up. I think one problem of space on my game boards has just been solved!|
