How to Generate Fractal Tree in MATLAB

Fractal trees an plants are among the easiest of fractal objects to understand. They are based on the idea of self-similarity. As can be seen from the example of a fractal tree below. This tree clearly shows the idea of self-similarity. Each of the branches is a smaller version of the main trunk of the tree. The main idea in creating fractal trees or plants is to have a base object and to then create smaller, similar objects protruding from that initial object. The angle, length and other features of these "children" can be randomized for a more realistic look. This method is a recursive method, meaning that it continues for each child down to a finite number of steps.
