3 Methods of Tree Shaping
3 Methods of Tree shaping was written by world leading tree shapers Peter Cook and Becky Northey. Tree shaping is an art form where fantasy can become reality. This is achieved by shaping the trunk of the tree into ornate or useful items. The most common form that has been shaped is the tree chair. Some trees have been trained into the form of a stool ready for harvest where as other trees have been shaped into chairs that are to remain living. This is a new emerging art field, with only approximately 17 practitioners at this time, three of whom are dead.
This book discusses the different published methods of tree shaping. Each method has a description of how it is done and by whom, with images of the resulting chairs. The authors also give their views as to the pros and cons of each method. This is a well thought out and researched book on the different methods of tree shaping. It's a must for anybody interested in tree shaping or wanting to learn how to live more cooperatively with the planet.
