Recreating a polygon forest made with scatter() as point shapes

I created a forest on a polygon using the Esri plant distributor rule. Now I need to split the tree group into separate trees for better ground alignment. I can get the separate trees by exporting each leaf shape as feature and then extracting the shape's centroid in ArcMap. However the export unfortunately doesn't give the leaf shapes their corresponding attributes, like tree type or an unique ID. Is there any way I could extract these attributes and make the trees identifiable? I want to preserve model editability so I can't export as multipatch.
