The Best Free Tree CAD Blocks

With so many “free” CAD block sites now charging for their resources, it is becoming increasingly harder to find good (and free) assets for presentations and general drafting work.

Tree CAD blocks are among some of the most popular DWG’s requested, and are used in abundance for almost every project in both plan and elevational formats.

A well formed and drawn tree provides interest, scale and context, and if used together with varying line weights, can also add depth to both the foreground and background of your 2D elevational and sectional drawings.

To save you time, the below shortlist aims to offer our readers with a quick and easy reference to what we consider to be some of the best and free CAD blocks currently available, along with a sample from our collection.

How do you make a tree block in AutoCAD?

Here are the general steps to create a tree block in AutoCAD:

  1. Start a new drawing in AutoCAD and set the appropriate units and scale for your drawing.
  2. Draw the trunk of the tree using the “Line” or “Polyline” tool. This can be a simple rectangle or a more complex shape.
  3. Draw the branches of the tree using the “Line” or “Polyline” tool. You can use the “Arc” tool to create curved branches.
  4. Draw the leaves of the tree using the “Ellipse” or “Circle” tool. You can use the “Copy” and “Paste” commands to duplicate leaves and create a full canopy.
  5. Use the “Block” command to convert the tree drawing into a block. You will be prompted to specify a name and a base point for the block. This base point will be used to specify the insertion point when you place the block in your drawing.
  6. Save the block to your “Block” library or in a location you can access easily.
  7. Use the “Insert” command to place the tree block in your drawing. You can specify the insertion point, rotation angle, and scale factor for the block.

Please note that this is a high-level summary of the process, it is recommended to consult the AutoCAD software documentation for detailed instructions and to be familiar with the software and its features before starting.

How do I add a tree in Autocad 2022?

In AutoCAD, you can add a tree to your drawing in a couple of ways:

  1. Using the “Tree” command:
  • Type “Tree” on the command line and press Enter.
  • Select the location in your drawing where you want to place the tree.
  • Follow the prompts to choose a tree style and set the tree’s properties, such as size and rotation.
  1. Using the “Block” command:
  • Create a tree block as previously described in my previous answer
  • Use the “Insert” command to place the tree block in your drawing.
  • You can specify the insertion point, rotation angle, and scale factor for the block.
  1. Using Content Library:
  • On the ribbon, click on “Home” tab
  • In the “Content” panel, Click on “Open Content Library”
  • Search for “Tree” or “Plant”
  • Drag and drop the desired tree into your drawing

Please note that, AutoCAD comes with a library of pre-drawn trees that you can insert into your drawing, these pre-drawn trees are in the form of blocks, so you can use the “Insert” command to place them in your drawing.
