Our plastic trees could lend some variety. We have seen more realistic trees for model railroaders, so our trees may be best used in layouts for younger engineers, as they are sturdy enough for play. All materials in this plastic aspen tree has passed the required testing, as these trees are sold as toys for kids 3 and older. The name "Aspen" is stamped in small letters on the bottom of the tree's base. Therapists like to use our realistic models for sand trays.

In the broadest definition from Wikipedia, "a tree is a plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting leaves or branches". Under this definition, palms, bamboo, and tree ferns are included as "trees". Some definitions attempt to narrow this to what most of us consider trees by naming specific height or use for lumber. However, when it comes right down to it, a 100-foot tree is still basically a plant, like any other bush, flower, or crop plant. Aspen is the common name given to a species of medium-sized deciduous tree from the far northern hemisphere. Aspens prefer colder climates, and extend south only along mountain ranges where the annual temperature remains cool. Aspens can reach almost 100 feet tall, and typically live 40 - 150 years.
