Why Are My Particle Trees Gone When Opening File

Hi, I opened a blender file I created in 2.65 and where I had alpha trees I now see only particle dots. I did have the alpha trees visible when I saved the file originally.

Is there a way to rerender or make my alpha trees show up in the same position they were in when I saved the file?

Just a guess: Are your alpha trees generated using an addon?
As I remember, in one of the later blender releases the handling of external python scripts was changed because of security reasons. So if you haven’t done so, go to the ‘User Preferences’ / ‘File’ tab and check ‘Auto Run Python Scripts’. Hope that helps…
