Tree shaping is an age old practice dating back to the 16th century. Tree shaping is more than just topiary which is only one of the varieties. Now, the fad is back and it's serving as some far-reaching inspiration for everything from bridges, and some crazy looking chairs you're just drawn to sit in!
Here at Orange County Best Tree Service we can actually assist you in this area of tree trimming and shaping. From your traditional shrub and tree topiary to the exotic and complicated tree shaping you see in the most interesting yards and properties.
How Does Tree Shaping Happen? Part of what happens is you have two trees or one that have branches that are close together and eventually grow together. The pressure from the two branches or trunks rubbing together will take the bark off both trees. This exposes the meat of the tree and the vasculature of the trees making them share their life force or life blood. This is like Siamese twin conjoining. What you do here obviously doesn't get done overnight. The branches and such must be trained and trimmed at just the right time and for the types of species they are should two species be bound together.
Elements of Tree Shaping:Apart from the grafting, tree shaping will have to be done by bending, pruning and weaving the branches to make a shape that creates a dramatic amalgamation of loops and knots! We at Orange County Best Tree Service have more than just tree trimming services. We have trained and certified Arborists that are more than familiar with all the trees in Orange County and the world. We understand that there are just as many –if not more species of tree being brought in and cultivated here. So, you can trust our expertise on your tree-shaping project.
Tree Shaping Types: Tree shaping in and of itself can take many forms. Tree shaping can be anything you do to change the shape of any part of the tree and for different reasons. You may have a stand of trees that are nice and bushy and perfect for topiary which is shaping the branches only into round, square, rectangular or triangular shapes as well as animal and human shapes. We have trained gardeners that can do that too! Other than topiary, tree shaping could mean that there is need for trimming tree tops and such because they are touching electrical wires or hanging into a neighbor's yard. What would happen then is we would trim and reshape the tree to grow away from these things.
