But why not using compilation CD, full of pre-made trees ?
In fact, it depends from what you need. A CD full of trees is less flexible, you don't have the power to change your trees. You've bought it, you've got it for life.
If you simply need 5 or 6 trees to put in a scene, you can buy a compilation CD, but if you need a complete forest, or if you often use trees in your scenes, buy a software for creating your trees.
