Happy Earth Day! How to Build LEGO Trees

Happy Earth Day, my LEGO friends! If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to plant a tree or do something eco-friendly for Mother Earth. Don’t forget your LEGO builds as well and check out this video on how to build LEGO trees!

The video above is from Master Model Builder, David Howard, of the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Chicago. It’s a time lapse video, so it won’t take but 2 minutes of your time. There aren’t explicit directions, but he gives you a full view of how he builds his trees for the LEGOLAND builds.
