Four of the common shaping methods are:

Topiaries

This method is performed by training the species by pruning or clipping the smaller branches away. This develops clearly defined shapes and are maintained to stay this way.

Espaliers

Espalier requires the plant or tree to be tied to a frame that is generally designed up against a wall. The plant or tree is grown around the frame to produce a shape or design.

Hedges

Hedges consist of closely spaced shrubs or trees that are planted, grown &Β trained to often distinguish a boundary line. Uses: Residential, Farming and Commercial.

Pleaching

Pleaching was common until theΒ early eighteenth century to create shaded pathways or living fences. Planted in lines, tree branches are woven to strengthen the overall structure.
