Your problem is very complex according to your posted picture, but for simple tree branching I strongly suggest that you read and analyze this topic very carefully...

There is a lot of theory on route mapping the simplest example is to just turn on your mobile GPS and ask go from Pt A to Pt B. If you google this theme I am sure you will find all sorts of mathematical models on how to do this. Putting into Autocad ? It is more likely that you will find a 3rd party program that analyses a series of strings. Then read that answer back into Autocad.

map3d (civil3d) has all that functionality built-in
one must first create a network topology then use _MAPANTOPONET command

Never to old to learn something new. Just so many commands.
