 I'm using Maya 8.5 you can apply my instructions for the latest maya release as 2015 or newer versions, just follow the steps. Create trees in Maya is easy, its are just simple paint effects, such as Airbrush, Markers, and Swirl, are included in Maya's brush sets.

You can see the potential of Paint Effects in more complex brushes, such as lightning and clouds, but it's the nature effects flowers, shrubs, grasses, and trees—that really show off the possibilities of Paint Effects.

 

  Following this video tutorial guide and you will be in a position to creating fastly an entire forests in few minutes using the Maya visor editor (you can find it in the menu. Much profit in order to realize full landscapes of vegetation like trees, plants, flowers, and other types of vegetation in Maya.

Create trees with the Visor editor can be easy but heavy too, some trees are very detailed and take lots of memory. Is fast and easy to create trees in Maya with the visor, if you have to create lots of trees just lower the quality of the trees and you will be able to make more trees with less polygons. An other important thing is know that those are not polygons or nurbs meshes, but paint effects (paint effects are not visible in mental ray renders). For convert paint effects in polygons or nurbs select the paint effect and go to the menu --> Modify / Convert / Paint Effects to Polygons.
