I'm experimenting with trees at the moment. It seems to me that oily plants like rosemary and lavender are more likely to bend than break when bashed. They have great texture too, especially the rosemary.
Hi Graham, breaking is not so a big proplem, I think. I avoid to plant in "flyingareas" and if necessary put some mecanicaly-breaking-item in front (wall, fence, stone, bush...). Erica, Fat hen and blueberry stay relatively elastic anyway, more problematic are arcacia and other trees. Especially erica seems to be easier pulled out of the ground if not fixed with at least one pound of plaster than beeing broken...I would be very interested in your testing-results.

In the past, I've also built a tree with Heki 1671st
I have in the last days times easily and quickly produced a tree that is impressive in my opinion.
On my last walk in the woods I noticed some plants from which one can make a tree.
First I sprayed the dried plant at the crown with clear varnish (resin) and then sprinkled with green turf.
The whole I have a few times until I achieved the desired result.
Here are the results:

Here is a picture of the bedding material ...
The construction period is approximately 15 - 20 min.
