After hills, trees and woods are probably the next most common and useful item to have as scenery on your wargames battlefield. Perfect for hiding behind, blocking line of sight or ambushes from the woods (Wood Elves anyone?) they are all round useful, especially as terrain for Warhammer, WW2 or other historic wargaming. Whilst the battlefields of the 41st century may be tree-light, there are plenty of opportunities for alien trees and vegetation in a Warhammer 40K battle too - you can let you imagination run riot. Trees can be fairly easily made (see my post on the subject -I made some trees from the vine tomatoes grew on and some reindeer moss) from wire and moss, or for an even easier approach, bought from wargames scenery or model railway scenery suppliers. Games Workshop make a range of plastic trees but they are pricey - I've found some good ones on eBay before now. Once you have your trees it is easy to make a wood, with a foam / MDF base, the trees and reindeer moss for bushes. Add sand to the base, paint it, flock and some static grass and you are done!
Or you can even buy some ready made woods from wargames scenery suppliers. They come up for sale relatively regularly on eBay so keep an eye out.
