Trees, grass, flowers, palms, shrubs & plants library Botaniq: Trees & Grass for Blender 2.8+ Cycles & Eevee
Tree library Botaniq is an ever-expanding library of optimized & realistic 3D vegetation - mostly trees and grass. It features a variety of Trees, Grass, Flowers, Weed, Palms, Succulents, Shrubs, Weeds, Plants and Pots for Architectural Visualization, Environmental Design, Rendering Forests, Landscaping, or any other scenes that could use a bit of varied greenery.
The library is always expanding with more trees & greenery joining the collection. Its price will rise slightly as it expands, but our goal will always stay the same - to create a massive library of models for everyone to use, with a very reasonable price/value ratio. The latest additions include even more trees, shrubs, tropicals, succulents, pots+plants, and seasonal variation.
We also plan to add new features like wind animation, different levels of detail, tree painting among others, based on requests and feedback.
NEW FEATURE - Scatter Assets
Quickly populate selected object with either pre-made particle presets of grass and weeds or create your own.
Create density weight paint group for each particle system.
Set density per square meter and recalculate if needed
Each asset has a rendered preview and can be easily added through our addon. By default the assets are linked, but you can also choose to add them as editable objects or convert them later on.
Add new trees easily
Adding new assets has never been easier. Create your nature scene with just a few clicks by selecting the asset from the library.
Snap to ground
No more floating trees or dragging your trees to ground one by one. Use the Snap to ground button to make sure all your trees are safely planted.
Randomize scale & rotation of selected assets
Nature is varied and random, so although it's unrealistic to have each tree unique, we've added a feature to automatically randomize the selected assets so their rotation and scale differs, giving the appearance of variation.
Winter or autumnal scenes are no longer a hassle -just select your tree with the season you'd like, then edit the asset however you choose.
Convert to editable
Make your selection editable from right inside your scene!

What do others think about botaniq?
“Botaniq saved me an incredible amount of time adding realistic trees and plants to my Blender scenes. The addon is very intuitive to use and the enormous amount of high quality models looks amazing both in eevee and cycles. It is definitely worth every penny.”
