    Circus Tree: Six individual sycamore trees were shaped, bent, and braided to form this.

    how the hell do you bend and braid a tree

    Actually pretty easy. Trees don’t reject tissue from other trees in the same family. You bend the tree to another tree when it is a sapling, scrape off the bark on both trees where they touch, add some damp sphagnum moss around them to keep everything slightly moist and bind them together. 
    Then wait a few years- The trees will have grown together. 

    You can use a similar technique to graft a lemon branch or a lime branch or even both- onto an orange tree and have one tree that has all three fruits.

    Frankentrees.

    As a biologist I can clearly state that plants are fucking weird and you should probably be slightly afraid of them.

    On that note! At the university (UBC) located in town, the Agriculture students were told by their teacher that a tree flipped upside down would die. So they took an excavator and flipped the tree upside down. And it’s still growing. But the branches are now the roots, and the roots are now these super gnarly looking branches. Be afraid.

    But Vi, how can you mention that and NOT post a picture? D:
