Hope this link works correctly.
Your tree is fabulous. I've always wanted to do one like that but couldn't figure out how to do the branches and roots. After looking at yours it sorta makes sense.
Maybe someone could make a template of branches and roots, then we could piece it together. I was thinkingof branches for 2,3,4 children and then roots split into 2 for parents. Like a build a tree.
