Look in a plant nursery. There are lots of different types of connifers, and some have small needles that scale down pretty well. Sometimes there are small trees in 3" to 6" pots that are pretty close. Well, there are where I live, in Australia, don't know what you'll find in your neck of the woods. Look at branches of connifer trees growing, sometimes a branch is like a miniature of the tree. I've done that before, for a prehistoric pine forest. The overall tree was like a wide spreading cedar, but each branch was a christmas tree shape. A bit big for what you want though, my trees were 3 or 3 feet tall. Look at fake plants, there might be something.
