There are a lot of different ways to make trees. Do you wanna make evergreen or decidous?
An easy way to make evergreens is to take pencils, or any other sharpened wood dow rods, and stab them through green batting or insulation. Or you even go easier and cut up an old christmas tree (I'm sure you can find tons of those on the side of the road or in the trash right now). One christmas tree is enough to make an entire Alpine paradise.
Decidous trees are a lot harder. One thing you can do is go to a craft store and get fake house plant that kinda look like trees. You can them up and go from there. You could also do the wire method by twisting wires together and creating a tree-like shape. From there you can add the same green insulation and cover the wires with clay in order for it to look more like a tree trunk.
These are only a few ways though. Look around on the internet, there are many different ways to make trees.
Hope this helps
I think that using a wire base surrounding with clay or putty would produce the best results, but it could also be the hardest to accomplish. I don't know if games workshop still sell it, but a book was produced called 'How to make Citadel terrain'. There were some tips in that.
Have a look on the internet as SpartanSoldier said, and also have a look in craft shops, and modelling shops. There are all sort of things that you can get from modelling shops that could be used to make trees. Alternatively, you could just pick up a few sticks. Using actual twigs can produce some very interesting and (obviously) realistic results.
If you want jungle trees (I get the feeling you don't but I'll tell you anyway) is to use aquarium plants. You can get these pretty cheaply from pretty much anywhere.
