These trees are handmade using sagebrush for armatures. The stuff very common here in Montana. Once the sagebrush is trimmed the way I want it, Woodland Scenics foam clusters is glue to the sagebrush. I use a hot glue gun. They take about a half hour to make and probably have less than a bucks worth of material in them.

Those trees look great. Too bad sagebrush doesn't grow in Michigan.

Chet, those look really good.

Maybe we could convince Chet to throw some in a box and ship them our way Mike.

Here's another shot. I have made similar posts on another forum and have had many requests for sagebrush. Sounds like I could get a little business going on the side ! For me, it's free, except for the time cutting the stuff.

I shipped some to a friend in British Columbia, Canada not too long ago and it took over a month to go less than 1000 miles.

Picked up some Sagebrush when I was out in Colorado.....One of these days I am going to utilize them....I grabbed a couple dozen extra large armatures figuring I could use a dozen for large trees and the other 12 trimmed into some smaller armatures and dead trunk material..:thumb:
