I'm no Lorax, but I speak for the trees!
After building my 88 Tree
, I continued on my tree-building quest. The end result was not only a forest full of big trees, but nice small ones as well.
That makes 8 large trunked trees and 6 small ones. The smallest of the bigger trees uses about 40 leaves, the largest (and tallest in pic) uses 115.
Christina is very happy with the small trees I was able to build, too.
These trees end up being a little taller than the large spruce tree LEGO offers. Their construction is simple enough, 6 large leaves, 1 small leaf, 1 green 2x2 round plate, 2 1x1 round bricks - one green one brown, all jamed together on a brown minifig lance.
The pictures are numbered 01-06 for those who are impatient. Otherwise, enjoy the Post-Mod Leafy Goodness
P.S. To answer a question I'm sure someone will ask - a little less than 600 large leaf pieces.
