I'm trying to figure out a way to have my trees in my site plan look realistic.  I have tried a few things but so far nothing has worked.  I would like to keep my visual style as Consistent Colors and show a realistic tree with some shadow.  I attached an image similar of what I am looking for.  Thanks for any help!

I thought you might be able to do it from a realistic view but the tees go away.

If you are only using Deciduous trees, you could edit the "Deciduous Base" family then using a realistic view - top orientation, you will have the tree shadows like my image below.   NOTE:  I obviously left that simple base.

I tried editing it and I couldn't get it to work.

I could do some 3D lines on an elevated work-plane in a special sub-category and that would show up but I could not get rid of the base pointer for the tree.  I could lower the tree so the bas pointer disappeared.  Image below is what I did... I did not take any time with this - just some splines that I mirrored around in the base family.

 

The problem now is the pointer base.

I'll have to take a look into it more.  Seems like it should be easier than this!

Will the tree in the downloads work for you?   I haven't used that one in a long time:
