From a single tree to a woodland area

I have always put my trees on a single round base, then i thought it did'nt make sense, if i put it on a single square base i could create a large wooded area.

Here is my single 28mm base i create, the base is foam, i got a large box of seafoam trees, which came as soft, bent and basically not fit for a wargame table, after i came up with idea i thought i could put some strenght into these trees and make them more realistic and fit for a wargame table.

Box that they came in was around 20 seafoam trees, i thought i could easy get 60-80 trees and plenty of bushes out of this. Get a tree and dip it in PVA water, hang it upside down on the washing line, use a peg to hang it on and a peg for weight, this will straighten the trunk and parts.

I used hairspray on my seafoam trees and dipped them into a container of grass, then sprayed again and repeated the process till i thought it looked ok, once in the foam base i put clay/milliput epoxy putty around the base, once dry i PVA all the trunk and base for more strenght.then touched up with paint.

Everything else is bits from a dog walk and the long grass is from a punk dolls hair and a hanging basket liner.
