Steps to Reproduce

The real repro steps are currently unknown. It seems caused by importing free SpeedTree assets ([Link Removed])

That being said, we have a way to trigger the issue that is causing the crash that the users are experiencing.
1- Import the file found in the folder Engine/Content/NotForLicensees/QA/Import_Test_Assets/Partners/SpeedTree with the following settings.
[Image Removed]

2- Delete the asset SpeedTree_Test_Branches_2_Mat.
3- Rename the static mesh asset SpeedTree_Test to SpeedTree_Test_Branches_2_Mat.
4- Redo step 1.
