3D foliage - it's a jungle out there!

Hello, everyone, I've just implemented rotating billboards for foliage rendering at a large distance and I was wondering if there are any convenient tools to generate/create foliage textures. I'm also looking for ways to create tree/bush models. I've googled for it but couldn't find anything particulary useful. It's for a project I'm working on where I have to render the main building of my school and some of the campus also. The most common foliage are pinetrees and some sort of pinebushes. Hope you can help me out, Jeroen

Thanx for the reply, Joakim_ar,

I will look into using the program you gave me for creating the billboards. It sounds like it's really useful. But, this still leaves the problem of creating the actual mesh for the tree.
I can't really afford to spend cash on tools like speedtree. Speedtree CAD seems like a very nice tool though that covers all my needs. Do you know of a free/demo version?

Are there any other free/demo tools for creating plant meshes?

Hope you can help me out,
Jeroen
