Purpose of the mod

This mod allows Admin to designate trees as private.

  • Private designated trees are not displayed throughout TNG except for users with admin rights.
  • Adds a checkbox in Admin/Trees (New and Edit) to designate a tree as private.
  • Status column added to the Admin/Trees display to show Private/Not Private.

My situation is that I do everything within my production TNG site including testing.
I have test trees that do not need to be public so I need this mod.
