CG4 Trees & Bushes

Scatters 6 types of tree & some bushes onto the land of Skyrim.

Screenshots/Video captured with ENB Enabled.

Billboards for DynDOLOD are right here


I cannot authorize/permit anything, since I just converted these files for SE, added a few fixes and tweaks.

You will have to ask NexusScoomaDrop for a real permission, since it's their creation.
If they give permission, feel free to use my ported files in case you need them.

Just don't make any money with it and give credit, please!

Best regards


Manually placed for best visual Aesthetic.
Bushes & Tree roots have
 no Collision (gameplay friendly).
Mushrooms can be found on some of the biggest trees.
Butterflies/Torchbugs & 2 deer placed in woodland version.

Level Of Detail (LOD)
Level of detail is when a high quality object is swapped to a lower quality object at a distance to keep performance high.
Trees will Pop in (or out) of view at a distance. This is not a bug, but a feature to maintain fps & performance.

Optional Files:
Performance Tree Textures, half the resolution of the main file. Up to 1k resolution.
No Bushes Patch, want no bushes? load this after your main file and it will remove the Bushes.
Bushes with Flowers, a simple bush texture replacer. Draws white flowers on the Bushes.

Conflicts & Bugs:
May conflict with other placed tree mods or City Expansions.

Do I need both Main Files?
No, only one. LITE or WOODLAND (see below).

What is the LITE VERSION?
LITE VERSION is recommended if you don't use DynDOLOD, this version does not
have the woodland added outside whiterun but does have Full-LOD applied to the few exposed trees.
Trees are scattered more openly so the pop in/out effect has been minimised.

WOODLAND VERSION has a woodland area added just outside Whiterun.
The Trees have no LOD in this version (see below for more info about LOD).
This version has noticeable tree pop in/out due to larger areas of exposed trees.
This version is suitable for DynDOLOD users who wish to make Billboard LODs.
It's a matter of personal preference for the non DynDOLOD users if you download this version.

What resolution is the main file?
Up to 2k resolution.

My tree leaves only move sometimes, why?
Skyrim will stop the leaves moving if the games framerate drops below a certain level (usually 30fps).
It's the games way of making sure your frame rate remains playable. This is not a bug but a feature.
