some of the orchard trees I weave and prune into artsy figures or put little decorations. I think the trees like it well enough and often flower and fruit on the small woven branches that would otherwise have been pruned off due to poor location or something. I think it will be interesting to see how these evolve over time.
these three are European pears that were planted in 2007 and bud grafted in 2008 if I recall dates.....last year was the first year for them to begin flowering.

this one has kind of a lot going on.... double trunk because of two working grafts

Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
