Based on an idea from the Ent-wife it took a long time to arrive ... but then Ents are never hasty ... hhrrrrrmmmmnnnnhhhhh ... no, never hasty.

Hope it meets with Frodo7's approval :)

Holy crap! This is awesome.
Comment by aphoria 25th July 2009
incredible! so beautifully made... the little branches with the leaves, the seamless connection with the roots, the gnarled yet perfectly readable look - chapeau! this would work perfectly on the cover of a fantasy book/fairy tale.
my only suggestion would be to copy all the letters on the lowercase without the connecting roots (sometimes you might not want them), and to make a space-wide connecting root on the underscore so you can let seperate words grow together...

Wow. I'm floored.

If this isn't proof of FontStruct's greatness and your mastery of said FontStruct, I don't know what is.
Comment by thalamic 25th July 2009
Tree-mendous.

Reminds me of the film Sleepy Hollow by Tim Burton featuring Johnny Depp. The headless horseman's twisted tree. Very mystical.
Comment by djnippa 25th July 2009
Thanks for the comments. They mean a lot coming from people who actually know what they are talking about :)

shasta - I have de-rooted all the letters and placed them on the lower case ... hadn't realised how many brick-stacks I had done on the original till I started copying! I will follow up on the connecting root underscore idea soon.
Comment by p2pnut 25th July 2009
this is great. much character and nuance. and great technique. interesting i think the cases should be switched - not that it matters - especially with all the brickstacking :) but i think lc as connected would flow better visually and have uc as non-rooted. like i said - not that it matters, you only have to switch uc and lc to get the same effect :) and still magnificent.

Spacing on E needs to be sorted out.
Comment by djnippa 25th July 2009
What a treet!

Great attention to detail. Love the overlapping branches.
Comment by geneus1 25th July 2009
@nippa - cheers ... have checked all the spacing again.

@funk_king - I'm a gibbering wreck at the mere thought of transposing the lc and uc :)
Comment by p2pnut 25th July 2009
Now that's what I call efficiency. Pretty fast job on the derooting! And a good one too... The sample text looks beautiful like this, I think I even start to see some poetic deeper truth of nature behind a fox jumping over a dog when it's written like this. ;)
Are you a gibbering wreck at the mere thought of making numerals too? ;)
Comment by Tobias Sommer (shasta) 25th July 2009
n n n n numerals?

I might give them a go before too long ... I may even include a few punction glyphs sometime.

In the meantime, I also want to add lower-case to my Alphabox family (mustn't ignore the little ones). I have been trying to find out whether it is possible to cut & paste from one font to another ... otherwise I will have to create a fresh lc for each variation. It's not that I am too lazy to do so, it's just that it seems such a long-winded way of doing it.
Comment by p2pnut 25th July 2009
Before doing other variations.
I find it's best to complete a font as fully as possible - numerals, punctuation, European Set, Spacing, Alternatives, Tweaking, and more tweaking. Only when I'm 100% sure it's complete do I then decide to do clones. Otherwise it's a nightmare. :-)
Comment by djnippa 26th July 2009
All part of the learning curve I guess. I'll remember your sage advice next time
Comment by p2pnut 26th July 2009
nippa has a good point. There is no copy-and-paste between fonts, unfortunately.
Comment by aphoria 26th July 2009
I wonder if that would be a possibility for a future version of FS?
Comment by p2pnut 26th July 2009
Very tree-ish indeed.

Holy mother of cricket, that's a MIGHTY NICE FONT YOU HAVE THERE!!! I'll do, do, do, so, do, so, love it!
Comment by DaveFlash 10th August 2009
Three words:
Best Font Ever.
Thank you for sharing! :D
Comment by Emiguin10 16th August 2009
This font is a good one. From its outstanding design, to its humerous name(Entrees--enTREES). This font is very enjoyable. But tell me: what trees are these, and what inspired you, p2pnut, to make this?
Comment by Mel O'Mann (aaaalllleeeexxxx) 4th September 2009
@aaaalllleeeexxxx: The idea came from the Ents (especially Treebeard) from The Lord Of The Rings. The trees are just fantasy.
Comment by p2pnut 4th September 2009
I see the numbers coming... nice! :-)
Comment by gferreira_admin 23rd October 2009
Beautiful numbers. This font is a pinnacle of fontstructing.
Comment by Frodo7 24th October 2009
Well, I think that's it for now - hope the additions make it a tad more useable.
