What time of day are you taking your pics? Dont take them in the afternoon as the light is too harsh. Evening after around 430pm will be good. When you take the pic, dont expose for the sky, then the trees will be underexposed, zoom in on the trees, half press shutter to lock exposure and zoom out again.

What is this shot for? If you want pics of trees the best thing will be to go to the Nature Reserves or the Tree Top Walk.

Face to face learning is the best. You can't possibly learn simply by reading online instructions and advise.
