Shrubs and small trees make great sources for diorama trees. I keep the ones that die, wash them thoroughly then hang them up to dry. Once dry, I bag them and keep them for Diorama landscaping. Often the roots are the best "scale".

I live in the USA. State of TN in the southeast region of the country.
It was a dwarf Alberta Spruce.

We have several but this one died for some reason. We have a number of "evergreen" plantings and trees, most of them quite young with a lot of growing to do. the evergreens have sturdier root systems.
The last plant that died was a YEW. it is an evergreen bush. I used some of the roots on my "demon" figure bust base.
Many plants are great for dioramas but it often the best parts are the roots and you just have to pull them up, wash them, and let them dry to see if they will work.
