We will have a large winter village, a city, Egyptian desert, trains, Wizard of OZ, Star Wars and a community build of a large Mosaic of London Bridge.
Another tree we use is a cypress tree.
The original design was created by Tim Gould and you can see his instructions at:
We modified the top of the tree to look a bit more even and we use 3 different heights by shortening the middle section from 10 stud lengths to 8 stud or even 6 stud lengths.
Here is a pdf version of the instructions:

Five of our club members went to a Lego convention in Santa Clara, California called Bricks by the Bay. There were about 300 AFOLs (Adults Fan of Lego) attending and a little more than 3000 visitors on the public days. We put together a 12.5′ x 25′ large City and Train layout. It won two prizes, Small Team Large Display award and the Best Landscaping for the Wizard of Oz scenes. Here are some pictures of that display:
We had a large area at Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019 (May 23rd – May 26th). The city/train layout was 12.5′ x 25′ and another similar sized area that included a moon base, misc models and lots of Star Wars. Here’s a bunch of pictures from the event:
We have lots of different styles of Lego trees in our display. This is one of them that looks great and is fairly durable although it does take a fair number of pieces to make. This tree was created by David Frank (and inspired by Thomas Rafert). The instructions are on flickr at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/fraslund/albums/72157633522859866
