    You plant four trees. When they are about 3 meters start bending them towards each other, slowly and gently... when they reach each other, tie them together with a piece of bast. Bast is made of tree bark, so the trees are not harmed by it. After a while the trees start growing around each other... and so on. It takes time. I'd say about 20-30 years.
