I used poly fiber glued to the armatures and then added ground foam and leaf flake using diluted matte medium. 

After spreading the sorghum heads, I painted with army green camo, then used the ground foam.  Not quite a pine,  but still a pretty cheap tree. 
The last photo shows a tree armature, but with Supertree branches used instead of the poly fiber, because I ran out of the fiber. I will continue using the Supertree branches because it is a lot easier than making the 15 to 20 fiber tufts for each tree.

Incredibly well done.  While I am locked in on quarantine, you’ve inspired me to head down and make some trees. Thanks.

Very nice looking trees, I like your techniques.  Have you tried any of the Scenic Express materials for making trees.  They have an outstanding assortment.  Thanks for sharing.
