Mate is that whole scene modelled?? Did you use instancing for the trees and also mate how many frames did you render???
Instancing is Da Trick
It is really easy once you know how:
Let's say you imported a Xfrog tree.
Right click that component and 'enable instancing'.
Next make a cube or something (I usually make a trunk like slim vertical beam, a stick) , group it and and make it a component.
That new component is going to be the 'dummy' component. In it's entity info panel, make sure it gets the exact same name as the Xfrog tree but with the addition of '_dummy'.
Right click the new component and 'enable instancing' .
Copy around the dummy component in your scene. done
See to it that the 'axes' on both the full 3D component as the dummy are alligned.
To check it: on the selected component, right click and choose 'select axes' and move the axes to the base of your component.
Once you did that, you can use the 'component spray tool' to have millions of dummies spread around your scene. (you can find the component spray tool over at SCF forum)
