Plastic Topiary Tree

Who says you can't teach an old tree new tricks?

Our Plastic Topiary Tree

Our plastic topiary tree will add a bit of green faux foliage to your diorama or school project. We have plenty of animals to go with the landscape you create. Do you make model railroad layouts? 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 topiary tree has passed the required testing, as these trees are sold as toys for kids 3 and older. The name "Topiary" is stamped in small letters on the bottom of the tree's base. Therapists like to use our realistic models for sand trays. Check out our other tree, flower, and plant replicas, toys and gifts.

About Topiary Trees

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.

Topiary is the practice of training plants to grow into specific shapes and patterns. This practice is common in many commercial horticultural industries, including landscaping and Christmas tree farms. The practice involves lightly clipping a plant's foliage in such a way that the natural growth of the plant allows it to assume specific artificial shapes, such as the perfect cones of Christmas trees.
