LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

TREE ART

Where we stay, we play around with bonsai, manipulating their little branches with wires to give them an aesthetic structure. Some people do this life size, for a living.

Arborsculpture is the art and technique of growing and shaping trunks of trees and other woody plants. By grafting, bending and pruning the woody trunks and or branches are grown into shapes either ornamental or useful. Similar to espalier and possibly including some topiary for some projects. The word is a conjunction of the words arbor (Latin for tree) and sculpture.

Intriguing, must be a life long project to some of these to full size trees.

It would be so interesting to have national botanic gardens doing stuff like this. Imagine going to the park with my kids in the future and showing them pictures of me next to a baby tree and how it has grown to be an arch or a tree house. Cool!
