Recommend good tree creators

Posted: January 07, 2013
I'm looking for 3D tree maker/generator to make skinned meshes of a wide range of tree types for asset packs. I've looked at quite a few and the problems seem to be:

(1) They specifically preclude use in asset packs (e.g. Frekle)

(2) They export to restrictive formats (e.g. Treemagik).

(3) They produce only a limited types of tree, or trees that aren't realistic.

(4) They generate an insane polycount and are time consuming (e.g. Arbaro)

(5) Are very expensive.

The only one I've found so far that seems sensible is Forester Pro since it allows asset packs, generates Collada, has pose-able models, and allows customisation. I've downloaded the free version and it seems to do the job, but if there is a completely free one I'd like to know. Can anyone recommend any others?

Lyndon here is what seems to be the official page for Forester Pro tree generator.

greenman, How about modeling trees yourself for commercial tree packs?
