Skatter for SketchUp is 

From small carpets in a living room to large scale forests, Skatter for SketchUp is designed to help you achieve the final look fast and easy.

Render Unlimited Objects

Through its "Render only" feature, Skatter for SketchUp sends all the scattering information directly to the render engines, bypassing SketchUp. That way, you keep a lightweight and responsive file while still being able to render huge amounts of objects.

Camera Clipping

Generate only the objects visible by the camera, or discard the ones too far away.

Distribution

Distribute objects randomly, on a grid, or a mix of the two, on vertices, faces, etc. Use altitude, slope, and collisions parameters to fine tune the distribution. Use probabilities when scattering multiple types of objects, to define precise mixtures.

Randomness

Randomize the objects placement by using random translation, rotation, scale, and mirroring.
