In this article, we will be discussing five free tree generator for Blender. If you are in the market for a new tree generator or if you are just curious about what is available, this article is for you. We will be discussing the pros and cons of each option so that you can make an informed decision about which one is right for you.
Blender Modular Tree
Mtree, also known as modular tree, is a free add-on for Blender that helps you create trees by connecting easy-to-use nodes. You can almost create any kind of tree just by changing the values in these nodes.
With Mtree, you can create any kind of tree you want, simply by changing the values in the nodes. This makes it very versatile and easy to use, making it a great add-on for Blender.
Tree gen is another plugin for Blender to help you create trees, and because it’s procedural, you can make a variety of trees, each different from the other.
With Tree Gen, you can create a variety of different trees, each with their own unique look. The plugin is procedural, so you can make as many different trees as you want.
Sapling Tree Gen
Sapling Tree Gen is one of the plugins that comes with Blender by default, and it may not be as good as a geometry node based tree generator, but it is good enough that you can make some convincing and great looking trees. Another thing is that because this is not a geometry node based tree generator, you can’t change your trees much after creating them. You may have to create another tree to make the expected changes.
How to get it: Search the name, then enable it as add-on.
Stylized Fantasy Tree Generator
Another great geometry node based tree generator for Blender, and the amazing thing is that it comes with a default tree and you can change it however you like with given parameters that are exposed in the modifier stack, but the only negative point is that the trees it generates are not super realistic, rather it is made for generating stylized fantasy trees.
Trees in Geometry Nodes
Again, this is another tree generator based on geometry nodes, but unlike others, it’s not a complete geo-node based tree generator system, rather the repo contains some nodes for generating trees based on splines and curves. It was made using Blender 3.2.0 Alpha. It will probably work with newer versions since Geometry Nodes have switched to Fields.
