I am painting an Ottoman force in 25/28 mm. Has anyone bought trees for their Middle East/Levant/Egypt tables, other than palm trees? If so, from which supplier?

Thank you.

First you'll need to figure out the trees suitable to the specific region in which your going to be playing. The trees of the Levant are probably very different than those of Egypt.

Also remember that the tree populations have shifted considerably over the past 500 years. Although much reduced now, towering cedars once covered much of the Levant. Check out the Lebanese flag.

Once you've got an historical idea of what you need, you can start checking vendors for examples.
