I'm making maps where it's important to know when terrain affects units
moving across the maps. For outdoors maps in a forest, I love the way it
looks when a whole forest of treetops covers the map, but of course, then
you can't tell where the tree trunks are beneath the canopy for the units to
hide behind.

Does anyone have a good solution for how to attractively show the trunks or
otherwise designate where they are? Is there a good graphic out there
somewhere that's an attractive top-down view of a tree trunk? Do people
just put a black circle or some other icon on top of the tree canopy to show
where the trunks are?

You can also just use tree stumps, possibly with a black center.
