Abstract
The effectiveness of small air-to-ground munitions against mobile targets can be somewhat reduced if the targets seek shelter under vegetation. Some quantification of the screening effect by trees can be done by computer, given suitable digital representations of realistic branch structures. The report documents the Tree Winter Image Generator (TWIG) program that can produce such representations. The program is based on a branch growth algorithm employing twenty-three parameters.
