While a good LoD system helps with graphics load, it doesn't help with overall
memory load (unless it's a PagedLOD), which was the problem with the buildings.

We have fairly good LoD solutions for both trees and buildings to help with the
graphics loads.  For example we display the large buildings are
further range than the
medium or small.  Hopefully people never notice it because it's quite subtle.
