We reveal some new evolutionary structures of convex pentagons on a C2 surface in the three dimensional Euclidean Space which is hidden on the notion of plasticity of weighted convex pentagons and quadrilaterals. We prove a creation principle for a weighted dendrite of order 3 on a C2 surface which is derived by decreasing the degree of plasticity of weighted convex pentagons from 2 to 1. The creation principle of weighted dendrites of order 3 characterize the process of creation of various leaf tree types on surfaces.
Keywords: Weighted Fermat-Torricelli problem, Steiner minimal tree, convex pentagons, surface, dendrite.
