    I just wanted to let everyone know that I was able to fix the black tree issue in a kind of unintentional way. On a whim I moved my terrain asset to the top of the hierarchy and ta da the trees rendered properly every time. It also appears that a fix has been implemented in 5.422b as well but if anyone is still having problems try this trick.

    This is a huge issue right now for me and my clients. And these clients are people like IBM and Chevy. They are asking me to switch to Unreal now, which I don't want to do.

    Along with the black trees, distant trees disappear in build/do not billboard correctly. Don't know if others have long view distances in builds, hence mention it here. My details are in one of the above mentioned threads.
