Need to find a free tree plugin/script, must be FREE
Need to be able to animate it blowing in the wind and must be able to create a variety of tree types ranging from palms to conifers.
Any help or even point in the right direction will be greatly appreciated, MUST BE FREE PLEASE!!!

I don't think anything this complex is available for free although I'd be quite happy to be proved wrong.

I know only 2 Plant Plugins for C4D but both are not for free (sorry):
PLANT 2.0: http://www.dpit2.de/v2/index.php?content=plants
XFROG 5 for C4D: http://xfrog.com/product/XA-06.html

CU.

Ah I forgot the free C4D Baum (this is the German word for tree) plugin from Klaus B├╝cher for the R13:
http://www.klausfilm.de/Baum_Plugin.zip

But this Plugins creates only static trees (or plants) and not animated trees.
Here some pictures from his German webpage http://www.klausfilm.de/

CU and have a great day.

Yes but he also wants to animate them, which would to my knowledge be restricted to Vue xStream and xFrog. He might be able to get the C4D presets to animate if he set them up to do so... But I don't remember any pines and conifers in it D:
