Buy a lifetime license to use The Grove Core 2.1, the unique tree simulation module that grows the most natural trees ever seen in computer graphics.

The Grove Core has no user interface, that’s where the add-ons come in. The Starter, Indie and Studio editions all come with access to The Grove in Blender, the rock solid Blender add-on that adds a bunch of awesome tools and the full power of this excellent (and free) 3D app. Plus, the Studio license adds The Grove in Houdini, the procedural way of growing trees.

The Grove works on macOS, Windows and Linux, with Python 3.7 or higher, and Blender 4.1 or Blender 3.6 LTS.

The Grove Core comes in three editions, each with its own license. To see which is right for you, go to the feature comparison page.

  1. The Grove is developed for artists. Do not sell or distribute 3D models of trees grown with The Grove. Because come on, that would be too easy.
  2. Twigs are optional purchases and they are not included in the addon. The Grove has users all over the world and because of that you are encouraged to create a bundle of twigs that represents the trees of your region and climate.

Bark textures included

The Grove includes a collection of seamless bark textures to finish your branching structure in a very realistic way. As with The Grove’s twig textures, these bark textures were captured with accurate color and reflectivity in mind. Correct white balance and exposure relative to surfaces of known reflectance make for quality assets that can be used without tweaking. Using quality HDRI lighting together with The Grove provides instant realism.

Bark textures included when you buy The Grove 3D tree growing software.
