This mod follows the instructions provided by WeptBurrito2749 and fixes the trees draw distance in MSFS 2020.
Please see post # 110:
https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/lod-problems-trees-fix-revisited/296923/182

This package offers a few tree rendering choices as described below in the installation instructions.
One can run tests with each variant and make the choice that gives the result closest to expectations.

In the screen captures I used BijanStudio's winter tree textures for better contrast.

Installation instructions:
Please remove any tree distance draw fix mode that you might have, then unzip and copy one of the following choices in your community folder:

Trees_Distance_Draw_Fix(75-100)
>>>this choice keeps the MSFS default tree sizes, and renders the trees the furthest

Trees_Distance_Draw_Fix(75-100)-SmallerTrees
>>>this choice reduces most of the trees by 10% (the large jungle trees reduced by 20%), and renders the trees the furthest

Trees_Distance_Draw_Fix(50-75)
>>>this choice keeps the MSFS default tree sizes, and renders the trees a bit shorter but there are less tree pop-ups and the trees seem to look better in my opinion. The distance is still bigger than when MSFS was released.

Trees_Distance_Draw_Fix(50-75)-SmallerTrees
>>>this choice reduces most of the trees by 10% (the large jungle trees reduced by 20%), and renders the trees a bit shorter but there are less tree pop-ups and the trees seem to look better in my opinion. The distance is still bigger than when MSFS was released.

The credit goes entirely to WeptBurrito2749 for discovering this fix. Thank you!

    Definitively a must have! Just one question! Is it or would it be possible to make one with 100-200 for the high end machines? :) Would be amazing i guess..

    Thank you for your kind words. It is actually very easy to modify the impostor tree heights to 100-200 by editing the 10-asobo_species.xml file and changing the 50-75 or 75-100 values to whatever values you would like, and then save the file. You can't do any damage even if you make a mistake.

    Wow, how did I miss this one? Such a huge difference! Didn't seem to really effect fps either. Nice. Thanks for your work!

    I'm very surprised to hear that. I did a flight yesterday after upgrading my sim (just the base sim, without the UK update) and it worked. I'll download the UK update and try again, and I'll let you know the result.

    Hello Eti, I tested the mod and it seems to be working for me even after the UK+Ireland update. I couldn't tell why it is not working for you, I'm sorry about that.

    Eti I had the same problem, I deleted the mod, launched the sim to cockpit state, closed it again, copied the mod back into the community folder and this fixed it.

    Thanks this enhances the experience very much.. I wish Osobo would do something regarding palm trees though.. Flying around S. California and not seeing them is a little crazy.

    I completely agree, I would love to see palm trees in San Diego and Las Vegas ...

    Hi there! This excellent improves a lot to enjoy visual flight without losing performance! Do you know if you can do the same with buildings?

    Hello, unfortunately this kind of fix would not work on the buildings.

    Hello philwhite100, please send me a private message with details on how you installed the mod, and I'll try to help you. I'm tempted to say just try to remove the mod, but I'm not sure if it would be as simple as that. Please send me the details.
