How to find fence line or tree line symbols

I don't seem to have any tree or fence line symbols in my Symbology styles. I was wondering where to find some or is this something i'll just have to create myself

Mapping Center Answer:

The ESRI US Forestry 2 font has a number of tree symbols, both planimetric and profile that do not (unfortunately) appear in any style files.  So, you would need to create your own symbols, but at least the parts are there to work with.

There's nothing for fences (beyond the idea of you creating a dash pattern and calling that a fence symbol).

You may also find the line symbols in the ESRI Forestry.style helpful in constructing fence symbols. The symbols are a type of Marker Line Symbol.
