SpeedTree is a powerful tool that specializes in perfecting your foliage and trees to bring them closer to that realistic look you desire. By the end of this SpeedTree tutorial, you'll have a good understanding of the program's parametric tree creation toolset, which will enable you to create natural-looking trees of all shapes and sizes.
