Try cutting bases for MULTIPLE trees in random shapes with two or three
on each bases. You can define the tree area as everything enclosed by
outer dimensions of the tree bases. That wasy you can move the multiple
around in side the areas without always knocking them over as you move
around, just twist the base or fudge it over an inch or two. The total 
dimension of the forest hasn';t changed at all, and there are not
trees littering the table.
