Recommended: Crooked Forests

Garden History Girl’s post about Crooked Forests. I was particularly taken with the idea of the abandoned cane forest — I imagine the gardener/craftsman who planted the trees was quite worried about them when World War I interrupted his work. I hate to think of what happened to her or him.

More recent examples of tree-shaping include the work of Pooktre Tree Shapers. Their tree-sculptures — living and harvested — are magnificent.
