Computer modeling and visualization of forest landscape recently becomes a hot topic, whose study can benefit such fields as virtual reality, ecology, forest management, physical geography and botany, etc. It is a problem to get the 3D model of the forest quickly and accurately. In this article, the placement of the trees and terrain are derived automatically from airborne lidar data. 3D structure of the trees is also extracted from lidar data. Combining these feature and AMAP software, 3D model of the tree is created.
