The trunks are reinforced with a 22L piece of hose, so that's not a problem. But the foliage pieces have a fraction of the clutch of normal bricks and are only attached by a single stud. I can barely move it to another room without a branch group falling off. If I ever took this somewhere to display, I'd just bring the pieces and plan to build it onsite.

I fixed your name, Max.
I didn't have any particular type of tree in mind when I created it. My back yard is wild forest, so I just looked out the window at the densely spaced hickories, oaks, elms and sycamores. The fruit were added as a sort of fantasy element, but I like the mango idea. I tried using the flower blossom parts in another build, but they're hardly noticeable when attached from the bottom. I have a ton of 1x1 round plates in orange and lime, so I may try them some time and see how they look. Maybe trans blue for an Avatar feel.
Excellent! I really like the leaf placement and how the trees curve slightly, it makes it look very real and natural. I too, am wondering what kind of tree it is, mango or peach maybe? The style is also very nice! 5/5
