Pooktree Arbosculpture and Other Twisted Trees

That's Peter of Pooktre Tree Shapers, who specializes in shaping trees as they grow in pre-determined shapes (sort of like a living sculpture!): Link

Hi this is Becky form Pooktre
Arborsculpture relates to Richard Reames's method of shaping trees.
At Wikipedia there was a consensus that a neutral name was needed for the artform, and Tree shaping was decided upon. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tree_shaping

I've been thinking of trying to grow and apple tree up the side of the house. I've read that you can train them to be flat, growing out wide, but with no roundness.
