Actually the trees on the hill was used and appeared on the Mild Seven's poster back in 1977. The original poster looks like this:

With all kinds of crops - Biei

Since there's a great temperature difference in Hokkaido, the vegetables here are very delicious.

Do you know that the Hokkaido is very famous too?

What are these trees used for??

Actually they are used as windbreak to protect the crops and the houses!

So the line of trees on the poster are actually used as windbreak too!
