Axel Erlandson was a Swedish American bean farmer in the Central Valley of California. In 1925, Axel began shaping trees as a hobby, using pruning, grafting, and bending techniques that he learned along the way. Many years later in 1947, Axel opened a roadside attraction called, "The Tree Circus." When people asked him how he got the trees to grow like that, he would respond, "I talk to them."
