While I had initially planned to offer trees with the forest bases for this Kickstarter, I decided not to for a couple of reasons. Admittedly, I do plan on offering trees for sale through my website once the Kickstarter is fulfilled, just not for the Kickstarter.
1) Kickstarter is for things I make, not things I re-sell. I wouldn’t be making the trees myself, just re-selling them from another manufacturer. As such, it just doesn’t seem quite right to offer them for sale through Kickstarter.
2) While I’m confident in the reliability of my supplier of my casting materials (and in the reliability of my back-up supplier, and of the back-up to my back-up supplier), any new supplier I worked with would bring an unknown element of risk into the process. I’d prefer this Kickstarter to go as smoothly as possible.
So, you’ll be left to your own devices to filling in the tree bases. There are tons of great options out there, and the bases should fit most model railroad trees fairly easily. I’ll be posting a video as the Kickstarter progresses showing several of my favorite options.
