Explain what you mean clearer. It's hard to understand what you are saying.

you could render the tree with an alpha channel (32 bit output file format such as TIF) from the front and from the side, then in a fresh max scene, make two planes forming a cross shape when viewed from on top. Apply the two renders to the planes and use the alpha channel as the opacity map.

That will give you the bare basics suitable for distant trees. Your tree will only have 4 polygons so will be very fast.

As Dub said. This is an image on a box in your case, not actual geometry. If you need to recreate that tree you will need the image and map it on your box. You shouldn't be worried about file size because like Dub said it's only a few poly's.

it's made using opacity maps. an opacity map does not show anything that is black.
here is an example of a leaf and it's opacity map.
