would spikes and/or tress create lag?

Well since way over half of my map consists of trees I have not seen any issues with severe lag or frame rate the only time I even see a slight shudder is when I place down a few dozen saplings and they grow simultaneously. I would be able to tell you after my entire map is filled but after a few hundred trees with no lag, I doubt that it causes it.

 
Thanks GK for the new sig it looks great!

I've found that trees create quite some lag, Placing them and allowing them to grow seems to be the cause of that tho

Do invisible barriers affect lag? Since they are transparent there is not necessarily a "visible face", so I would assume not but I am not sure...

Yes, they may not have a texture but air is still touching them.

They do not. An invisible barrier is about as efficient as it gets, like air.

does that mean if i remove the blocks inside of my skyscrapers I'm creating more lag on my map? I thought because I was using less blocks it would be less lag. but if I get what yur saying because the inside block faces are exposed to air I am creating more lag? I just wanted to know because I have a lot of lag on my map.

If you have more blocks exposed to air, it will create more lag, so if you fill in all your skyscrapers should have alot less lag as only needs to render the outside of the buildings.
