    Here it is in action:

    Left bunch is painted trees from a GameObject which has an LOD script attached. Note that I get random rotation here but I lose wind.

    Middle is the game object dragged into the scene.

    Right bunch is painted but without the LOD script. Note that I get wind but no random rotation.

    Unity 2018.1.6f1

    I am experiencing this issue with Unity version 2018.1.6f1. Either I put my trees in a GameObject with an LOD attached to the parent which causes me to lose leaves moving in the wind, or I don't and get wind but no random rotation.

    It would really be amazing if this could be fixed rather sooner than later. Placing all your trees into LOD-groups just to get a random rotation is really annoying.

    Issue still not resolved in Unity 5.4.3f1 and 5.5.0 Beta 11.

    I many days search solution of this problem. But when I fix one, I found another problem.

    I try use very specific trees with cartoon style, so I can't use Unity Tree or Speedtree.

    For make custom tree rotate randomly - you need create Prefab with LOD of trees, and load this prefab to terrain. After this terrain can set random rotation of trees.

    But if use LOD prefab, is stop working wind (Bend Factor automatically hide from settings), and stop work randomization of colors.

    So now I have not good choice:
    - Use LOD and lost wind and random color;
    - Use one mesh Prefab, not have random rotation and not have LOD;

    Very sad, I still try find solution.

    Still an issue in 5.4.1f1 The only solution I have found (which is not a good one) is to make multiple version of the same tree prefab but rotated slightly. It means a lot more extra work and less overall variation. :(

    The problem is still present for Unity 5.3 Trees created with Unity Tree creator.
    The option for random rotation completely disappeared.
