Default WED - X-Plane and Trees on the Field

On a PC, assigning an overlay image by coordinates (TerraServer has error code)
I import data ref file into WED and place a few things where they should be, and then export to x_plane's Custom Scenery folder. Everything shows up, but infiltrated by trees. How to fix?? Anyone??
Other problem, I construct a hangar using L and W measurements from Google Maps. Everything looks good, but when I superimpose over the overlay image for placement, they are too long by about 40%.
Also, while placing runways in WED to match, I assign runway heading, and they are not lined up with those of image. Tried mag and true to no avail.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks

Not at all certain, as I don't know much about X-Plane graphics requirements....

but perhaps there are limits to the pixel size of texture files? Perhaps they *must* be square (same pixel number on height as in width)? Or they must be "power of 2" pixel dimensions (e.g., 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, etc.)

Other things to ask: have you textured the graphic in AC3D, and previewed it in AC3D? Did you use the TCE to check your mapping?

Yes to all of that.
Can you think of anything else?
Thanks
