Hi Bill,

in Marvel terms I would describe myself as the Collector. I never was a Pareto
type in my life (80 % result by 20 % of effort) - personally I`m determined for
at least 97 % completion. And povray is one of my "collector" fields.

So I collected much more than 1000 trees (and many more plants too) during the
last 20 years - whereever possible.

In 2000 I switched from pov-tools only to professional ones (xfrog / onyx etc.)
and invested heavily in them (wouldn`t do it today anymore).

So I understand trees and plants, but I don`t have the needed modelling skills.

Luckily there are sites as https://archive3d.net/?tag=Tree to provide good
meshes for free.
