Trees in general are excellent diffusers, though it's hard to get very many into a studio. :D

I also love the reverberant field caused by sound bouncing off the edge of a forest, the diffusion in the sound is incredibly organic sounding (whatever that means..).

I was out on a fireworks day and recorded quite a few impulses of explosions followed by the reverb from the tree leaves in a forest 100m away. It made a lovely impulse for a convolver reverb.

And since 12th night has now passed, your acoustic treatment has to be removed.
