In this tutorial we will learn to create a parametric Revit tree family.

Throughout these lessons we will learn about the family behavior of a tree. We will learn to create the leaf as an adaptive component family. Also, we'll learn to create the branch as an adaptive component to which the leaf family is nested and repeated. Finally, we will learn to construct a tree family by nesting the branch family and repeating the instance along the rest of the tree.
