    I am continuing my work on an updated Harnic style and working on trees and bushes now.

    These are the symbols I am using for this and the fills I have completed for now. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    They are: Tree and bush symbols; light scrub; dense scrub; coniferous forest; deciduous forest; mixed forest.

    I am wondering out loud here.

    While the scrub would usually be made up of many types of bushes the forest may be less varied. I used only four different symbols for this.

    Should I consider the following for the forests?

    Consider using only one or two types of coniferous trees for that fill, I used three?

    Consider doing the same, or maybe up to five different types for the deciduous trees?

    For the mixed forest, instead of 7 deciduous and three coniferous trees consider 4 and 1 (or 2) in the same order?

    Best option is probably just try all the options on a large area and see what you like best. Difficult to advice what's best just from the numbers.

    Look to see what type of vegetation exist near you. Pine, Live Oak, Mangroves are common in Florida, plus some other stuff that I forget. In the plains, Cottonwood, Juniper, Willow. Aspen in the rockies.

    Some parts of Central Texas have oak, cedar, and willow trees. Go just a few miles west and cacti with shrubs and trees are few and far between.

    Google Earth is your friend for quick reconnaissance

    Little Big Horn, Montana

    Everglades, Florida

    Cape Canaveral National Sea Shore

    Hunfeld, Germany

    Your three colorful ones look overly dense to me, but if you look at the Hunfeld shot not so much. The scrub in the other three seems to be fairly open, but you have to look around for yourself.

    Google Earth zips you to your location unless you set some other default, so you can see how it looks from space and compare it to what you see on the ground.

    mesquite trees is what I was trying to think of earlier. They aren't tall, bushes really, with thorns on them that are very painful.
