    Amazing trees

    I found this interesting;

    “These trees were grown in Santa Cruz, CA the year unknown,
    but the man that grew them never told any one how he did it.
    Then in around 1999 the owner of Nob Hill foods in Gilroy, CA
    moved them to his park in Gilroy and they are doing well.”

    Good for turning?

    one."

    Cool pics, Bruce. I've seen them before, but I'm still amazed every time I look at them.

    They are pretty cool. I would guess the "how" is much like training young trees to grow straight (except these are crooked) by using braces and forms to bend the limbs while they're young and supple, then using ties and guys to keep them there. Once they're positioned they would be grafted and tied in place until they've formed well enough to stay on their own.

    cheers
