Default Trees are oversized

As title says. In caucasus some trees are 30- 60 meters which is equivalent of the Pisa tower in Italy for example or 20 floor building. All the trees are oversized which is very annoying for low level heli flying. It kills the sense for speed, height etc.. also buildings and objects are much more hidden behind them than it should.

In Normandy is a bit better but still most of the trees are between 20-40 meters which is still too high for that area.

This was discussed in another thread and it was found that the trees are the correct height for the region.

I'm gessing it's a design decision. Bigger trees cover more space visualy. Smaller trees would look sparce and increasing density of smaller trees would harm performance.

Those are the tallest trees in France:
22.20 m Le domaine du Windeck, Ottrott Sisley 2012
20.40 m Jardin Botanique, Strasbourg Wim Brinkerink 2014
17.80 m Place of St Pierre church, quartier Carlitos, Pau

They likely haven't been in Normandy as based on DCS, all trees there are 30 meters.

And no, there are no 60 meters trees in Caucasus.

EDIT: In fact they do exist in caucasus, but more like a record and not all over the place and every single forest.

I hope it is not as it really ruins helicopter experience in many cases, approaches to land, hiding targets and villages, sense of size, speed and height is all ruined. Especially in VR. I would prefer less trees but with correct size.

+1 IMHO trees in Caucasus are overscaled. Not in PG gulf or nevada map.

I was just thinking this over the weekend flying Warbirds in MP. Looking down from 3-4k meters other fighters at treetop level looked like the scale of birds compared to the trees.

This was all brought up when new Caucasus was first released and yeah it's still true. There's even a config hack (that I can't find at the moment) to make the trees smaller.
Problem is, as mentioned above, the same number of trees only half the size makes the forests very sparse. Like, DCS 1.X sparse.
I pretty quickly reverted back to unrealistically enormous trees. : (
