@mtnmen - Dave’s introduction to the Instancing Lab is a good start. If you’re interested to go deeper into that Lab, you should take the time to read (1.) Instancing Lab by Rashad Carter, 7 pages, 1 MB and then work through (2.) Instancing Lab by Kine_magiK 62 pages, 33 MB. Both appeared in these forums and the link points to PDFs compiled from the threads,

@Jay - cool and colourful.

@TheSavage64…
Wow..  thank you for this… tutorial…  I have never until a few days ago gone into the instancing lab… All the info you gave me here is really good… and I especially appreciate the suggestion of a multi-replicate… which would mean additional hands on placement of the trees… but less crash potential…  Which I have experienced in my “instancing” ...  I will jump into the lab again today… and utilize the suggestions you gave me…
Thanks
Steve

Well a handy hint about Multi-Replicate is to create your first tree ABOVE the highest point of your terrain. Then replicate only on the X or Z axis. When you have your row of trees, make sure they are all selected (including your original), click the downward pointing arrow on the selections little floating menu and they will all drop to the surface of the terrain following it’s contours. Then without deselecting any, go to the EDIT tab and use the Y movement icon along with the Option key on the keyboard to nudge them down so all the roots are below the surface.

Some really nice renders here!  Will comment more in the morning, but this looks like it’s going to be a great challenge.  Here’s my first entry. I’m so over this project!  Bryce shut my computer down more times than I care to count and I finally had to run the LAA tool to solve that problem.  Want to change a lot, but I’m done with it. Learned a LOT and swore more than I probably should have! LOL

Bryce terrains, lattices, and trees make up the majority of the scene.  The gator is from the DAZ store and the HDRI is from David and Horo’s vegetation package (http://www.daz3d.com/bryce-7-1-pro-vegetation). Time to move on to the next project.

@mermaid:  That is such an amazing animation for this challenge.  I watched it through a few times and felt I was seeing the genesis of a forest.  Really nice work.

@Jay:  Your pun image finally reached the deeper gray cells, and might have hit them sooner had those threes been different wood materials.

@Art:  Now there’s a place not fit for swimming.  That scene has a terrific atmosphere.

@Art - that’s a great swamp scene.

@mtnmen - you’re welcome. In fact, Dave’s post made me read through these two PDFs and do some experiments.
