I think I'd use fine copper wire. 
You can twist 2, 3 or 4 strands together for the base,
and then branch off part way up. 

Cover the twisted area with a clay or filler for the trunk.
Bunch a number of them together in a clump,
and put them in a base of clay or balsa foam.

Paint the branch assembly with an appropriate color. 

Then use some scenic leaves or ground foam for the foliage. 
Hairspray the branch tips and sprinkle on the green stuff.

Gonna' take some time though,
but there's no fast way if you want them to look right.
