That's alright for a computer game. You shouldn't have more then 20k triangles for the main character and if it's some scenery object you should have much less.
In the end it all depends on the engine and the computer you're running the game on though.

why dont you setup 3 trees,
1 - at 20 - for close ups
2 - at 12 - for mid range distance
3 - at 6 - for those at a long range.

and all models can come from a single mesh.
