This guy is pretty cool. He makes dioramas out of low cost stuff and some wacky ideas. Here is a link on making conifer trees.

Here is one from a model rail road site:

I was thinking of using this method on a future diorama...

But instead of twigs, I was going to use floral wire to form the stems.

Lots of ways to make trees, especially amount the model railroad buffs.  Look specifically at O and G scale articles.  Simplest are the kits from Woodland scenic.  Best are probably the "weed" and lichen trees by the late great John Allen, Malcome Furlow and other well known trail modelers. 

I remember a excellent article on making yellow aspen trees out of weeds and yellow paper cut from a hole punch.
