Will it go inside or outside? Does it need to be movable?

Cardboard would seem like an OK choice for the bark. You could also roll it up into a cylinder to make the trunk and branches.

Maybe you could make leaves by cutting them out of the plastic from pop bottles, like the green tinted kind that Mountain dew comes in.

In our school we have a metal pipe tree in which the trunk is made of piping and the leaves are made from coloured glass.
