Extra GardenCAD trees

Here are some tree symbols that can be downloaded and incorporated into your designs. We suggest that you save any symbol that takes your fancy into the My Documents>GardenCAD>Blocks folder so it is available for any future design work. Use the Insert>Block sequence to place the symbol.

Tip: These symbols have been created by following the general principles outlined here.

It is a good idea to gather a number of symbols similar to these that are not found tin the GardenCAD plant library.

Many web sites provide free examples of blocks like these in DXF form. Download from the Internet, start a new GardenCAD drawing and use File > Import DXF to load any of these. Save the symbols you like and save them in GardenCAD’s native file format) .vec. When you have gathered a number of new symbols, import each in turn into a single GardenCAD drawing. Then, when designing and a new symbol is needed, import the whole drawing as a block and ‘pick off’ any you need for the current job.
