10 Most Magnificent Trees

April 20, 2011

Bean farmer, Axel Erlandson, had an interesting hobby. He shaped trees by pruning, bending, and grafting them into extraordinary shapes. He called them “Circus Trees.” He created the following “Basket Tree” arbor sculpture, by planting six sycamore trees in a circle, and then grafting them together to form the diamond patterns. This was a man who was willing to wait years for his art to grow.Basket Tree (Image credit:jpeepz)
