Beautiful Trees


Last Updated . Click "Updates" above to see the latest.

Ever wondered why LEGO-trees are so small compared to the minifigure? Well, I do.

I live in a very green city with a lot of trees, but the LEGO city barely has any tree. With these beautiful trees, you can make you city a much greener place for your minifigs to live in. These trees do also look great with other themes for instance Castle.

Trees are lovely, they have different colours (especially in autumn) and shapes. Look around and see for yourself. Wouldn't it be great to capture this beauty in an official LEGO set? You could also add educational information about the tree in real life - for instance height, colour, Latin name, origin - something like a variation on the Architecture series.

I propose a set with one large summer tree, which can be build in several ways to create a different kind of tree (like a 3in1 Creator set). You could think about adding leaves in different colours to change the tree from summer to autumn, winter or spring.

Red beech or Fagus Sylvatica. Looks beautiful in any castle garden or estate.

A swing and birdhouse can be added to the large summer tree to add play features .

Please visit my project page on Facebook and Flickr photostream to find other, smaller trees like the birch and a poplar. And please share this project with your friends to gain more support!
