I was able to get my hands on one box each of the new Battlefront / Gale Force 9 Summer Woods Small and Large. By now you all know I'm a big fan of their Battlefield in a box line, and these are no exception! Let's take a look.
First up, these are packaged very securely using the standard styrofoam (unlike the new Rural farm houses), and thus these all arrived pristine. Both the trees and bases are very sturdy, you'd be hard pressed to mess either one up throughout normal gaming.
The trees appear to be a thin wire coated in flock. They're built very well, and barely shed at all. I think they chose good alternating colors that look good on the table top (though the trees do look a bit unrealistic). I also really like the scale of the trees- these are monsters in 15mm and medium for 28s. Versatile trees for reusability!

In all, I definitely like them enough to snatch up at least one more box of each. Expect to see them in many upcoming AARs!
