Fibonacci Tree

Two branches are placed on a vertical cylinder (the trunk of the tree). One of the branches is a T-branch and the other is a single branch. The size of this unit is reduced and placed on an identical vertical cylinder as a new branch, together with a single branch on the other side, forming yet another unit. This procedure is repeated to produce a Fibonacci tree, in which the number of final branches are the successive Fibonacci numbers. You can tilt or twist the branches to simulate the structure of biological structures.
