I'm trying to extrude... sort of

I'm trying to add volume to closed path. Simple, use extrude. However, what if I want a somewhat more rounded or irregular top surface?

Let's say I hade a closed polyline silhouette of a simple tree. I can extrude it for a flat top, play with fillet caps, but how can I literally round out the trunk and branches making them look more realistic; it would be as if the tree were sliced down the middle. How can I achieve that?

By the way, I'm a 3d printer, so I need to use a displacer to rough up the trunk etc using a bark texture if possible. Commentary in that regard would be appreciated as well.
