So I am a beginner in blender and trying to make a tree with sapling tool. I made it, added texture on leaves and I wanted to do the same to the bark but I faced a problem. When I want to select bark in edit mode to unwrap it, I can't. I only see these particles, these threads. Do you have an idea how to transform the bark into an object and unwrap it?

My tree in edit mode

The tree's bark is a beveled curve, not a mesh object. You have to convert it first. Select the tree in object mode and hit alt+c then select curve to mesh. After you can unwrap it.
