This was an experiment to see what we could do in flash, back when flash was the thing that people did. We are excited that Javascript has now for the most part replaced flash, and are working on porting this example over to Javascript. I (dan) wrote a simple thing several years ago using Flash.

I took the basic mathematics of an L-System. One of the disadvantages of the above example is that it is compiled code, and therefore difficult to modify and share. Still, its an example of what is possible with a little bit of inspiration, and a little bit of creativity. We took the first node and colored it brown, and then all child nodes and made them shades of green ,varying with depth.
