Find CoInstances works in two ways:

1. With Multiple Objects selected it will find objects that are cloned on top of each other resulting in animation flickering

2. With a Single object selected it will find and select faces that are coinstanced

To select all faces which are coplanar use the list-box to "Select All", or
To select only those faces which are copies of the original, use "Select Only Duplicates"

Additional Info: 

1. Run script

2. In Max goto "Customize->Customize User Interface...->Toolbars tab->Category: ColinScripts" and drag "Find Coinstances" to a toolbar, click to run.

This is great, except with multiple objects, it would be nice to only pick one of the duplicates, so you can just delete them right away, the way it is now, you still have to go through them 1 by one, and it takes ages with 10000 trees!
