032518_002 FIG Tree from Little Branch

Shiny Shabby opened on March 20 and this beautiful Fig Tree from The Little Branch can be found at the event. The lovely Fig Tree is a multi-season tree with animation. It has a full trunk with a gentle bend and the spread of leaves is rounded. In the box, you will also find other goodies such as animated grass (v4) and animated summer snake grass. All items can be resized so you can fit what you need.

Just a little general information about the Common Fig tree (printed from TreeFolks)

  • the scientific name is Ficus carica
  • it is native to the Middle East
  • the common fig can grow to 25 feet and is often very wide, however, it be pruned into shapes as desired
  • the fruit (the fig) is a very desirable fruit for animals and for humans alike
  • the tree does not have to be pollinated in order to produce fruit – it can produce two crops per year and will produce fruit on the current season’s growth as well
  • If you do not prune, the trees will grow to be scrawling and perfect for tree-climbing

.. the poplar tree ..

“For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider,
every green tree is far more glorious
than if it were made of gold and silver.”
— Martin Luther

032418 poplar tree little branch_001a

I’ve been unable to blog for the past few weeks but I’m here now with this awesome tree from The Little Branch which can currently be found at the faMESHed event. The beautiful Poplar tree is a four season tree and has animation as well. In the box, you will also find other goodies such as fluffy and snake grass and mesh hills. There are 2 versions of the tree included – a large version and a small 2LI version. Both can be resized so you can have a variety within your scene.

Just a little general information about White Poplar trees (printed from Woodland Trust)

  • the scientific name is Populus alba and the family is Salicaceae
  • it is a deciduous broadleaf tree native to central and southern Europe, though it is naturalized in the UK
  • the white poplar can grow to 20m or around 65ft
  • once fertilised, female catkins develop into fluffy cotton-like seeds, which fall in late summer
  • the underside of the leaves is paler than the upper side. The stems of the leaves are also distinctly flattened
  • Leaves are dark green-grey and white-ish on the underside, thanks to a bright white coating of woolly hair. Most leaves have five lobes and have irregular teeth around the edge
  • white poplar was widely thought to be non-native in the UK, however, references to ‘abel’ trees in historic documents indicate it has been here much longer than previously thought, and so it could be native

.. the giant beech ..

To the great tree-loving fraternity we belong. We love trees with universal and unfeigned love, and all things that do grow under them or around them — the whole leaf and root tribe. ~ Henry Ward Beecher

blog 020318 The Little Branch Giant Beech Sense Event

The Little Branch created the Giant Beech tree for the new Sense event which opened on January 15, 2018, and runs for 25 days. That means you have around 6 more days to pick up this big beautiful tree at the event.

This Giant Beech is a four (4) season tree and it is animated too. The animation is very light and natural. The tree is 100% mesh and the permissions are copy/mod. You can change the size but as with all mesh, just watch the land impact.

Just a little general information about beech trees (printed from Woodland Trust) –

  • the scientific name is Fagus sylvatica and the family is Fagaceae
  • it is a large deciduous tree
  • beech trees can live for hundreds of years with coppiced stands living for more than 1,000 years
  • In Celtic mythology, Fagus was the god of beech trees. It was thought to have medicinal properties – beech leaves were used to relieve swellings, and boiling the leaves could make a poultice. Forked beech twigs are also traditionally used for divining

Head over to the Sense event before it closes to pick up the Giant Beech. And for more amazing trees and flowers for your land, visit The Little Branch mainstore sim too!
