A year ago I my foliage plan was to upgrade my old XFrog plugin to work with new versions of Maya. The upgrade wasn't expensive but it also didn't work at all problems with the interface as I recall. They promised a workable update "soon." I've since moved on to SpeedTree.

If you have access to SpeedTree, you certainly don't need XFrog.

Yep!  I'm digging in and learning SpeedTree now.  Got me a subscription, and and am amazed at the power in that app.  SpeedTree has so many more features it is mind boggling at first.

Wow!  10 Years!  Sometimes when searching the forum I don't notice the dates, and just reply.  ;)

On a positive note I finally did get a genuine apologetic reply from Stewart over at xFrog.  Sounds like they are crazy busy right now because of some new changes/products coming soon.  Not sure how much I can say, so I'll just leave it there.

Since I already have all their stuff, minus the software, it'll be great to what new they might have to offer.

I haven't had any issues with the models, have you?  I think they are adding new products soon.  :)

Oh yea, they are not the best for close up shots sometimes (depends on the tree).  I haven't tried anything else other than SpeedTree trees.  The Cinema Library trees are very nice, but I work mostly in games so I have only ever used the lower quality Games Library trees.  I have seen some impressive stuff come out of e-on Plant Factory too.
