Starting from their Professional-Series siblings, the 17 new HO scale Pro-Elite trees go one step further and are unlike any trees before them, pushing the envelope on realism. JTT's hand made, United States patented twisted wire process and foliage techniques take each portion of these new trees to new heights. The most genuine bark ever seen on a scale tree, adding a third dimension to trunks and branches with a gnarly, rough-hewn and knobby surface. The two-tone paint technique simulates aging, while the exposed roots are superbly detailed. Robust branches are accurately filled with airy, multi-colored leaves... only Mother Nature's trees are more realistic!
