Vertex/poly count at right is for entire scene as shown (including the NURBS surfaces). There are 6 individual trees in five stages:
Stage 1: ~1.5 feet - two trees (10500v 18850p average)
Stage 2: ~3 feet - one tree (42482v 73956p)
Stage 3: ~4 feet - one tree (54554v 95266p)
Stage 4: ~5.5 feet - one tree (102342v 179024p)
Stage 5: ~7 feet - one tree (182550v 320028p)
The model is 'rigged' in the sense that all trees are fully customizable by adjusting the surface constraints already applied. 'F_elastica_stages.ZIP' is available as well with 16 total trees ready to go.
