One piece of advice I'd give with this technique, and it's a bit late in the year to be giving it, is to model a real tree. Over the winter months, when the trees are bare, take pictures of trees, and one or two from underneath would help. Then use them to help you at the wire bending stage. Trees branch in diffeerent ways than most of us think they do.
