I used a selection of ready-made trees on this layout, including Noch summer deciduous trees, Noch fruit trees, Woodland Scenics Premium trees and Woodland Scenics Classic trees. All of the trees looked good, and I also added three very cheap trees that I had in stock which had bright green foliage. I covered it with hairspray, then sprinkled on fine-quality scatter materials to improve their appearance.
Drill, bore or punch a small hole into the baseboard, place a blob of PVA into the hole and press the tree in place. Hide the base with scatter. In this case, I’ve used Poly Fiber.
I ran a bead of PVA glue in the cottage garden and pushed the line of fruit trees into the glue. I spread the glue over the base and sprinkled on some ‘soil’ scatter.
This is fruit growing territory, so I thought these Noch fruit trees would be ideal. The fruit looks horribly over-scale under a magnifying glass.
Noch’ ‘N’ gauge standard summer trees next to a 2p coin. The trees in the pack vary between 40mm and 100mm in height.
