Here's a link to someone's collection of bonsai (miniature Japanese cultured trees) combined with miniature tree house designs. I've imagined for a while doing tree houses, and stacked architecture in this style, and imagine it would be very tough to map, but it is an intriguing idea.

I've been trying to work out how to do some elven style tree house maps. I love the concept but haven't come up with anything particularly great in the way of ideas as to how to do it well.

With this I think you should be glad that stems grow at the ends not in the middle.

Thank you for posting the link. I showed the page to my partner in world designing for our world and her comment was and is... WOW. Its really a wonderful site for ideas. I look forward to seeing your maps of the stacked housing. You will need to do elevation images to show off the relationship of the structure and the tress.
