How to make Transparent Trees

A recent thread on the Render Plus Forum investigated how to make transparent trees for a rendering.

There were two simple methods.
1. Render the trees and place them in front of the rendering as a Foreground Image.

2. Freeze the tree images in SketchUp and make the images transparent.

This second method was used in the rendering above - which allows placement of solid objects (bench and fence) in front of the trees.
