The title says it all. Anyone know of the some good tutorials (I have been searching around but haven't found any).
Thanks..

Use a clip map. 1 polygon and looks great.

Check out BeeVee's latest interviews on newtek-europe, there are some free low-poly and very effective trees with Dave Tracey's interview, and he explains a bit how they were made and how to use them.

Thanks for the plug Omeone! Saves me the trouble of saying that you can go to Dave Tracey's interview by clicking this link: http://www.newtek-europe.com/uk/community/lightwave/tracey/1.html

I left the link out so that they could enjoy the benefits of a good browse through the site and see the rest of the interviews and freebies aswell.

Try this method of using two flat Polys with clip maps

Works well enough for stuff in the far distance, but for closer work, try these:

There is also some good trees in your object directory that came with LW. Check the urban directory.
