Drawing trees in Processing

I’ve been looking at different ways to draw trees (the kind found in forests) using the Processing language. Below are some of the good examples I found online.

Tree example

Simple examples of a tree in processing.




This sketch lets the user plant trees which then quickly grow and randomly branch. When the tree is tall enough it also blossoms with flowers.



This is a representation of the tree of life. The tree is written in processing and allows a user to explore different species and how they are related to each other. The tree lets you follow different branches to learn more about a species. It also provides links to Wikipedia to learn more.

    I’ve book-marked it for later!
