While building minifigure scale trees is tough because they’re so parts consuming, micro trees present their own challenges! So after looking at 7 secrets for deciduous trees and 8 ways to build a LEGO palm tree, let’s see what we can do in micro!
Not too long ago we took a look at 8 unique ways to build LEGO palm trees, and today we’re back with seven secrets for building deciduous trees out of bricks! These are pointers I’ve picked up over the course of my building experience. But let me just say at the outset: there are dozens, probably hundreds, of amazing ways to build trees out there, so consider this just the tip of the iceberg!
