Temperate Deciduous Trees

A selection of both popular and colorful temperate deciduous trees mainly from Northeastern America and East Asia planted in parks, gardens, or streets including excellent specimen trees with the wonderful floral display such as the Yoshino cherry, and Voss’s laburnum (golden rain tree) or large, broad-ovate leaved trees such as the foxglove tree ‘Lilacina’, and Southern catalpa or the London plane tree.

10 broadleaf tree species of Laubwerk Plants in 3 variants, 3 ages and 4 seasons each, for architects and CG artists working in 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, and SketchUp.

Includes 360 Models

All Laubwerk Plants in this Kit come in 36 variations per species, i.e. 3 variants, 3 ages, and 4 seasons. Here are a few examples of the variety:

Voss’s laburnum (Laburnum x watereri ‘Vossii’) – rendering by Mario Kelterbaum using Cinema 4D and OTOY OctaneRender

Includes Free Laubwerk Player

The free Laubwerk Player plugin comes bundled with each of the Laubwerk Plants Kits.

Use the Laubwerk Player to easily load and control plant models inside Autodesk 3ds Max & Maya, MAXON Cinema 4D, and Trimble SketchUp. Just drag-and-drop your 3D tree, set the shape, age, and season and level of detail control. Watch the lightning-fast rendering with inbuilt and 3rd parts renderer support.

Laubwerk Player Plugin

Inserting, controlling, and rendering great-looking 3D tree models has never been easier with the Laubwerk Player plugin! The Laubwerk Player provides immediate visual access to your Laubwerk plant library. You get multiple drawing options in the viewport (like simple hull shape or skeleton) for quick feedback and low memory usage while editing your scene. And when you’re satisfied, watch the Laubwerk Player dynamically render fully detailed plant models at amazing speeds, with automatic default materials and level of detail.

Plant Library Browser

The Plant Library Browser appears right in the 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, or SketchUp main menu and provides direct access to the Laubwerk Plants installed on your computer. Drag-and-drop your 3D tree species into your scene or replace existing trees. Loading the plants through the Plant Library Browser directly creates materials with basic shading and textures preassigned, saving you time and memory while you work.

Plant Object

The Plant Object represents a Laubwerk plant model in your scene by using low-memory hull or skeleton mode for easy placement. It dynamically loads the model’s age and shapes that you chose, creating a simple viewport approximation that allows you to apply model alterations and adjust the level of detail settings. Laubwerk Plant Objects are fully scriptable using MaxScript.

V-Ray Support

Dedicated support of V-Ray saves you time and memory. Instead of manually converting Laubwerk Plant Objects into V-Ray proxies, the Plant Object detects when V-Ray is used for rendering and dynamically creates the model’s geometry during rendering. This is the exact same process V-Ray uses for V-Ray proxies, just automatically applied without any manual setup.

Renderer Support

Materials and textures are created on the fly – for the built-in renderer or third-party renderers.

  • For 3ds Max, Maya, and Cinema 4D: mental ray, iray, Maxwell Render, Thea Render, Arnold, OctaneRender, Corona Renderer, and Redshift.
  • For SketchUp: V-Ray for SketchUp and Thea Render for SketchUp.

Laubwerk Advantage

  • Plug and Play – One-click solution for architects and CG artists who need realistic 3D trees, immediately.
  • Fast and Fluent – Render-ready 3D trees minimize the need for finetuning that can otherwise interrupt your workflow.
  • Easy and Integrated – Drag-and-drop plants inside 3ds Max & Maya, and MAXON Cinema 4D, or Trimble SketchUp.
  • Intuitive – Simple settings are a mouse click away.
  • Smart Content – Go beyond static models! Choose the shape, age, season, and detail of each tree.
  • High Tech – Laubwerk technology minimizes the usual compromise between high-quality graphics and efficient memory usage.

Realistic 3D Tree Models

Laubwerk uses a hybrid of procedural modeling and hand-detailing by botanists and 3D artists to make the most realistic CG trees.

  • Render-ready materials and textures are created on the fly – for the built-in renderer (3ds Max, Maya & Cinema 4D), or third-party renderers such as V-Ray, mental ray, iray, Maxwell Render, Thea Render, Arnold, OctaneRender, and Corona Renderer.
  • Leaves consist of more than just a single polygon, so they bend and catch highlights.
  • Textures are based on high-quality photos from real trees.
  • Models maintain shape and density, regardless of detail level.

The following 10 tree species are included in the Plants Kit 6. Each species comes in 36 variations per species, i.e. 3 variants, 3 ages and 4 seasonal aspects, for a total of 360 models per Kit.

catalpaSouthern catalpa
Catalpa bignonioides

Medium-sized, deciduous, spreading tree with an irregular, broad-rounded crown. Grey or yellowish to reddish brown bark. Large, broad-ovate, pale green leaves, pubescent below, opposite, or in threes. Short-pointed at the tip and rounded or heart-shaped at the base. Very ornamental, bell-shaped, fragrant, white flowers with purple and yellow inner markings bloom in late spring in many-flowered upright panicles. Fruit a long, slender bean-like green pod that matures to dark brown in autumn.

labernumVoss’s laburnum
Laburnum x watereri ‘Vossii’

Small deciduous tree with a vase-shaped crown. Olive grey bark, darker with some roughness and fissuring on mature trunks. Alternate leaves composed of three leaflets. Spring leaves are bright green, mature leaves glabrous and blue-green turning yellow-green in autumn. Lavish display in late spring of long, drooping racemes of bright yellow, pea-shaped, fragrant flowers. Poisonous seeds. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.

tulip treeTulip tree
Liriodendron tulipifera

Large, stately, deciduous tree with a pyramidal to broad conical habit. Column-like trunk with brown, furrowed bark. Four-lobed leaves, heart-shaped or truncate or slightly wedge-shaped at base. Bright green leaves turn golden yellow in autumn. Cup-shaped, tulip-like flowers, yellowish-green, marked with orange within bloom in late spring. Scaly, oblong, cone-shaped brown fruits. State tree of Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana.

ironwoodPersian ironwood
Parrotia persica

Small- to medium-sized deciduous tree or large shrub with a wide-spreading habit, often multi-stemmed. Smooth, pinkish-brown bark. Bark of mature trees exfoliates to leave attractive patches of cinnamon, pink, green, and pale yellow beneath. Broadly ovate leaves, alternately arranged, emerge reddish-purple in spring, mature to a lustrous, medium to dark green in summer, and change to variable shades of yellow, red and purple in autumn. Small but abundant crimson flowers on bare twigs in late winter and early spring.

FoxgloveFoxglove tree ‘Lilacina’
Paulownia tomentosa ‘Lilacina’

Fast-growing, medium-sized, deciduous tree with an upright to spreading, rounded crown. Thin, grayish brown bark with shallow fissures. Ovate or shallowly-lobed, large green leaves, slightly hairy above and densely hairy beneath. No autumn color. Profuse bloom of very fragrant, trumpet-shaped, pinkish-lavender flowers, which appear in mid spring in large panicles before the foliage. Fruits are oval, wood seed capsules that emerge green and ripen to brown in autumn. Spectacular tree primarily grown for its profuse spring bloom of foxglove-like flowers and its large catalpa-like green leaves. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.

london planeLondon plane
Platanus x hispanica

Majestic large, fast-growing, deciduous tree, initially with a broadly conical, then extensive and with round crown. Attractively patterned bark, usually pale grey-green, smooth and exfoliating bark. Medium to dark green leaves are thick and stiff-textured, broad, palmately lobed, maple-like. The young leaves in spring are coated with fine stiff hairs at first, but by late summer the leaves are (nearly) hairless and turn a pale yellow-brown in autumn. Inconspicuous flowers. Clustered, burr-like fruits, which persist throughout winter. The original cross between Platanus occidentalis and Platanus orientalis may have occurred in the 17th century, after which this tree became widely planted in London and other major European cities because of its tolerance for urban pollution.

yoshino cherryYoshino cherry
Prunus x yedoensis ‘Somei-yoshino’

Small, deciduous tree with a spreading, broad-rounded, open crown. Dark reddish-brown bark. Elliptic to oval, serrate, dark green leaves, alternately arranged, turning yellow and with bronze tints in autumn. Fragrant white or tinged pink flowers in clusters appear before or simultaneous to the emergence of the foliage in a profuse and spectacular early spring bloom. Small black cherries, loved by birds. One of the most widely planted of flowering cherry trees in Japan today. It is considered one of the most spectacular of flowering temperate trees in cultivation.

pin oakPin oak
Quercus palustris

Medium-sized, fast-growing, deciduous tree with a columnar trunk and a broad pyramidal crown in youth, matures to a loose, spreading canopy. Smooth gray-brown bark usually develops ridging on mature trunks. Glossy, dark green leaves typically have five bristle-tipped lobes turning reddish-brown or bright crimson in autumn. Inconspicuous flowers. It is perhaps the most popular oak of eastern North America.

sassafrassSassafras
Sassafras albidum

Small to medium-sized deciduous tree with an upright habit, shrubby in youth, matures to a dense, pyramidal tree. Reddish brown bark on young branches, thick, dark red-brown, and deeply furrowed on mature trunks. Glossy aromatic leaves in three shapes (unlobed elliptical, two-lobed, and three-lobed), bright green above and glaucous below. Leaves turn to yellow, purple and red. Attractive but quite inconspicuous greenish-yellow flowers appear in clusters at the branch ends in early spring shortly before the leaves. Male and female flowers are carried on separate trees.

american elmAmerican elm
Ulmus americana

Medium to large, fast-growing, deciduous tree with a vase-shaped crown and a spreading umbrella-like canopy. Smooth, dark grey bark with deep ridges. Dark green simple leaves, alternately arranged, with double serrated leaf margins, typically turn an undistinguished yellow in autumn. Inconspicuous flowers, and fruits. American elm is one of New England’s most beautiful trees and was once before the Dutch elm disease a ubiquitous and monumental street tree.
