I think it would look like a forest of giant redwoods. But probably wouldn't fit. They would be like 4ft tall!

The diameters alone would be ridiculous.

Scots & Sylvester Pines
More gnarly and burly than spruce or White Pine.
Less straightforward to make.

Twin-shoot Beech
Copper wire & twine... urethaned, covered with white glue/sawdust mix, and airbrushed.
Takes a while, because the white glue is slow to cure completely.
All these materials make them very heavy, so the base should be somewhat substantial.
Most Beech species like well drained areas such as slopes. I put them on swale banks.
I made 40... only 6 are twins.
