scaletree armatures
The armature is the key to high realism in model trees. ScaleTree armatures are made of twisted wires with a flexible realistic bark texture coating.

ScaleTree Armatures  

scaletrees without foliage
For the modeler who wants to add variety in their foliage or blend our trees with other trees, we created this product that is ready to plant except for the foliage.

Most highly detailed model trees are only available in kit form. We changed that. The ScaleTree Complete is a large deciduous tree with high realism, and is ready to plant.
