Trees (Most common) start out small from say; 1mm out of the ground to about 350 foot tall.

Redwoods could be about 70 feet in diameter and stand in the ball park of 500 + feet tall.

Or perhaps you could clarify what information your looking for?

Terrain model trees? or Real trees??

Most tree products sell with the range of 3/4" tall (Z or N scale) to 5" tall for S to O Scale railroads. Beyond that real plants are better to use for say Garden Railroads.

For warhammer 40K the scale is 28 mm translates to 1:64 scale, or for Railroads 'S Scale' trees, buildings (kits) would all work for warhammer's 28/30mm scale figures.

Sorry about that, your question was a bit odd.

post a link when you've finished the model. maybe you should start a thread where you continually add links when you complete a model.
