Fractal Tree

The Goal

Our goal is a construction of a fractal tree whose branching angle and ratio of dilation can be dynamically changed. Two incarnations of the tree might look like those shown below:

A script with recursion will provide the fractal. Rotations by marked angle and dilations by marked ratio will provide the dynamic alterations.

Go to the next page to construct your own fractal tree.
