The whole folder isn't there. When I delete ESRI.lib and restart CE, it tries to build the project and fails: "Unable to find the path /ESRI.lib/scripts in the project were (sic) it's added as a source folder for pydev (project: ESRI.lib) member:null - [Worker-5]"

Another restart seems then to rebuild the project, but the plant folder is still missing. Curiously, the corresponding rule folder is there. Copying the model folder from 2018.1 works as workaround.

Starting with CityEngine 2019.0, the plant models are not included in the installer (to avoid taking up a lot of space in the installer package as we increase our 3D model asset library).  They are now downloadable along with other 3D models through File -> Manage ESRI.lib -> Webstyles/Vegetation.  The plant rules in ESRI.lib have also been updated to work with the new file structure and gltf format.
