Circus Trees. As a hobby, bean farmer Axel Erlandson [wiki] shaped trees – he pruned, bent, and grafted trees into fantastic shapes and called them "Circus Trees." For example, to make this "Basket Tree" arborsculpture, Erlandson planted six sycamore trees in a circle and then grafted them together to form the diamond patterns. -dude, what do I even pin this under??? Art or nature? Crazy
Circus Tree ... 6 Sycamores were shaped, bent, and braided to form this beautiful tree. Axel Erlandson
Circus Trees, Bonfante Gardens (now known as Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park). The Circus Trees were originally grown and created by Axel Erlandson since 1928. There are 25 Circus Trees still alive today. This one is the Basket Tree. These trees represent one of the most visible demonstrations of the love of nature by man—first to create and nourish, then to maintain, and finally to preserve and cherish these stunning creatures.
Axel Erlandson Circus Trees | In the early 1900s, Swedish tree sculptor Axel Erlandson planted “The Basket Tree.” Actually, this is a bit of a misnomer, as it is a collection of six different Sycamore trees that have been grafted together. In the late 1940s, Erlandson opened a roadside oddity attraction containing 20-30 tree sculptures. Today, they have been transplanted and are on display at Gilroy Gardens amusement park in California.
Bon Fonti Gardens, Gilroy, CA. Axel Erlandson’s passion for sculpting trees, also known as arborsculpture, led him to open a horticulture attraction in 1947 near Santa Cruz, California named The Circus Tree and people flocked in from all over the country to view his strange and striking creations which are nothing short of breathtaking!

THE TWO LEGGED TREE or ARCH TREE. This "simple" tree is located at the entrance to Claudia's Garden, just off the main path. It was created from two American Sycamores (Platanus occidentalis) and was originally started in Scotts Valley, CA. Fun Facts: The center of the arch is 9’7” tall. The iron rod was placed by Axel Erlandson and held the "Tree Circus" sign.

Axel Erlandson's "Arch" started in the early 1900s from two American Sycamore (Buttonwood) Platanus Occidentalis. I especially love this example from his famous 'circus trees'.
Axel Erlandson was an American ‘arborsculptor’ who planted trees in specified patterns and pruned, bent and grafted them into shapes not seen in nature. He opened a horticultural attraction in 1947 near Santa Cruz, California named “The Tree Circus”, and people flocked in from all over the country to view his unusual and striking creations. After the land changed hands several times, 24 of Erlandson’s trees ended up in the Gilroy Gardens amusement park.

Japanese artist Takanori Aiba created this amazing bonsai treehouse sculpture called Bonsai-B using stone clay, epoxy putty, copper line, plastic, and resin.
Japanese artist Takanori Aiba, a former maze illustrator for the Japanese fashion magazine POPYE, spent much of his career as an architect. Finally, in 2003, he merged his two interests—maze-building and architecture—to produce these intricate bonsai tree houses
Japanese artist Takanori Aiba has taken bonsai trees, food packaging, and even a tiny statue of the Michelin Man and constructed miniature metropolises around these objects, thus creating real-life Bottled Cities of Kandor. Explains Aiba of his artwork: A tower made out of ice cream packages.

Always liked Bonsai trees. Beautiful!
Bonsai forest planting
“That’s the most exquisite bonsai I’ve ever seen!” It’s a beautifully trained Japanese juniper, a quarter of a meter high. That in itself is elegantly done. But it sits inside a rock that looks like a just-cracked-open egg, and half of it is missing. Living moss spills over the side, like yolk. The entire micro-landscape sits perfectly balanced on a Japanese teak stand. Surrounding it is the most gorgeous turquoise aura.
