3D tree growing software for Blender.

Let nature take its course and grow natural 3D trees for visualization, art and film.Simulate the seasons in interactive steps. Each year growing, bending and pruning to evolve majestic trees.

Build high quality models that are lightweight to render. The Grove’s unique way of distributing hand modeled twigs brings incredible detail and flexibility.

Mimic any tree’s character using growth parameters such as branch angle, gravitropism and gnarliness. One single set of parameters defines the tree’s entire life from sapling to hero tree. Play with this DNA to mix up species, even while growing.

Control the flow of sugar and hormones to make your creation compete for light.Interact with an environment to attract, deflect and block new growth. Nurture your tree like mother nature.

Quick start your tree. Alder, Ash, Birch, Linden, Maple, Oak, 14 presets capture a variety of tree forms. Thousands of species are just a couple of tweaks away.

Integration with Blender adds all the power of a full 3D application. Trees come to life in the Cycles GPU renderer. Import twigs from you favorite modeler – export trees to your favorite renderer. Blender is the ideal host for the Grove on Linux, Mac and Windows.
