How to edit the GDL of a tree to make the leafs disapear?

Jan Vlach

So, I have a very special need: I need to put a tree trunk with branches but without any leaves on into my project. I briefly looked into the code of the "Tree model detailed 24" and promptly realized that it might actually be a little above my paygrade, especially as the tree object (as far as I can understand) is calling a macro in order to build itself so I would need to examine the code that generates it (is there a way to access it - I understand that it would be wise to edit a copy of it and redirect the macro calls to it), edit out the part that is responsible for leaves or disable it in another way and then, heyto presto the tree should work just fine, no leaves, still parametric as it used to be. However, is there perhaps a smarter way of doing this?

(And yes, I know I can turn it into a morph, but where is the fun in that, right?)
