Low poly tree tutorial

I love low poly scenes and for ages I would build my low poly trees by using a cylinder and extruding the end. Then copy the tree and rotate it... but this took ages. Then it dawned on me that using the skin modifier would be a much quicker way. So here it is a quick tutorial on how to make a low poly tree in blender.


  • merge vertices
  • extrude vertices
  • copy and paste and re-merge vertices
  • add skin modifier
  • add modifier
  • decimate

Hope this helps you all and have fun Blendering

Here's the tree I made for the tutorial on Sketchfab:

  1. This is Great, I have been staying away from blender for a couple of days. This is easy and fun. I might show this to some people I teach blender to.
