I'm creating a sustainable treehouse learning facility and I want to use the tree trunk for support. Is there any way I can do that? I need a really large tree to accomplish this. Maybe revit has a tree trunk component by itself. I use sketchup but it renders white.

You would likely have to model your own tree.  Shouldn't be too hard, especially if you're just focussing on the trunk.  

  There aren't many good trees available for revit -- I had to make my own sitka spruces.   There seems to be an overabundance of flowering cherry trees or and the like, yet... the majority of us and our clients don't live in Japanese rock gardens.... As for rendering, finding a suitable bark material will be your challenge.  perhaps by playing with the size of an existing material pattern and its bump image you can get a good effect.    If it were me, I'd model bark, but I'm OCD like that.  I'd model a long irregular sweep, rotate vertical, and radial-array around the trunk... with a rough render apearance, BAM!  Megabytes...

That is not my final design..I'm currently changing the materials to wood to give it more of a treehouse look. I'm also working on the wood/timber structure and framing
