First of the trees are replacing the oak trees in your terrain menu. If you use them as a regular fill for forest , a pattern becomes evident on the map as one of the trees is really dark. This is not a big problem, as you can delete and move them around like normal . For making those dark swampy parts on maps this is a gem of a mod ,and really adds that extra creepy punch. Another great feature about this mod is that your map still looks decent even if a player doesn't install the mod along with the game.
The cliff mod is made to resemble more of a limestone type cliff. There is however a slight flaw that is quite noticable .The mod seems to have been made using an inverted color system ,as no signs of structural change is evident , and tends to be lacking "contrast" . It has a faded looking quality that robs the cliffs of the dark shadows they must have to make them realistic. They are still very much usable,however i wouldn't use them in crucial areas.The use of trees in front of them here and there helped quite a bit

The cliffs appear to have their saturation lowered and brightness raised from the original cliffs. Nothing more was changed but their color. The new cliffs barely blend into the basic terrain, and when placed next to higher contrast items, look totally out of place.
Some of the Olk trees changed, one is very very noticably darker, similar to the cliffs only opposite, its brightness has been lowered and saturation possibly raised. One of the trees is completely transparent except for its shadow.
I believe this is a terrible mod, so much that it makes me eager to try and produce my own, better set.
Don't download this. Look for the other cliff mod, and I'm sure there are plenty of other tree mods too.
