How to make a tree?
The pole is 6" in diameter (18" circumference), 9' high. I've ordered birch bark tubes to wrap around (http://www.barkcanoe.com/materials.htm) the pole. The trunk is set.
Next up is to make branches for the top of the tree. Anyone have experience making branches and leaves look realistic? Where can I buy artificial leaves? Should I buy an artificial tree and cut off the leaves? Should I make the leaves myself?
