Today I’ll talk about building trees with clips and bars. Oftentimes tree branches point upward or downward at an angle. Clips and bars are a good choice for achieving these angles. Let’s look at the following trees.
The key to this tree is alternating the clip plate angles to cover up all of the empty spaces. One drop back is that the 1×1 clip plate doesn’t come in any shade of brown. So your tree trunk has to be a different color, such as tan.
This next technique uses this palm tree part to form the basis of the branches. To build taller trees, just stack the basic structure on top of your tree. The final result looks like this.
