Prototype DUPLO Trees?

On Bricklink there is a thread topic about large Cypress trees... that appear to be DUPLO prototype trees that may have made it out of the Billund LEGO factory. Has anyone ever come across any of these? One appears to be a DUPLO Pine Tree, and the other appears to be a stout DUPLO Cypress Tree.

I've not seen these, and would consider them very rare. I doubt these would be a clone, since to produce a mould for these parts would be very expensive.

    Still appear to be having problems with posting images... the previous image did not show up until I posted another comment (this one)...

    Just to confirm what I'm looking at - so they look the same as a lego tree...just bigger? Any idea on the actual sizes? They look huge.

    Those aren't Duplo trees. Duplo trees were flat and lacked the kind of form of Lego trees. They appear to be study models, production prototypes of Lego trees made out of scale to accentuate details.

    I wouldn't think they're production prototypes for standard trees, since they seem to fit a little too perfectly on a DUPLO surface. Typically, I think prototype elements are bigger than 2x scale, aren't they?
