So what do we use to represent trees on the tabletop? We have all been at our local big box store the day after Christmas buying up the leftover supply of Christmas village trees. And these are a great basic supply, but it kind of gets old fighting around the same old Douglas Furs. I wanted a little more variety without spending a ton of cash so I went to the trusty eBay to find something that would work.
The trees are made to be pushed into foam on a train table. I want to mount them for gaming. So, I just split the wires on the bottom and folded them back so they would sit on a washer. I super-glued the tree to the washer and then used JB weld to cover the bases and make sure the tree was attached securely.

These will work for 6mm all the way up to 28mm depending on the size of trees you get. Remember that small trees can work for 28mm and large trees can work for 6mm. So a mix of sizes can work with all your games.

What do you use for trees? Do you like lots of trees or just a few?
