Abstract Trees and other plants in computer applications, mainly computer games are often very similar. One of the reasons for the similarity is due to each of the plants often is modeled in an editor. Different looking plants require each model to be modeled independently, which is time consuming. Therefore one plant is simply copied to many locations. The purpose of this report is to present a method that utilizes Lindenmayer's systems by extending this system with additional symbols. Due to models of plants contain a many polygons it is not possible to render the polygon model in real time. Therefore the method includes the generation of the imposter for the real polygon model during execution of the application in which the plant is inserted. To reduce the render time of the imposters the method also includes Level of Detail in the imposters.
