I just bought some 19cm high pine trees with snow flakes from Coles at $3 USD each. They are in the Christmas decorations section. I think good value as a normal wargame tree at this size perfect for 28mm would be more expensive. I am going to spray over white snow flakes.

I agree, great price, but I would cut off the cheap snow and replace with Woodland Scenics Soft Snow Flake.

Spraying sounds like a good idea. I brush painted some Christmas hedges years ago. The individual branches had just enough spring to them that, once the brush had moved on, they would bounce back into place, flipping a tiny bit of green paint out at me, leaving me with green speckled hands!

Go to Wal-Mart after Christmas….They have bags of "winter trees" in various sizes. I think I got 75 tress for $30.00 USD last year. It may have been a little cheaper than that

Years ago I tracked down the wholesaler of plastic aquarium plants sold in pet shops at ridiculous prices, and got a lifetimes' supply for making 28mm jungle sections at a fraction of the retail price. Maybe you could do the same with these.

Admittedly I was (briefly) operating a small business at the time, and could therefore show the wholesaler the pertinent certification, but it might still be worth a try.

Today the trees were $2.40 USDAus in Coles. I bought several more.
