Farmer Axel Erlandson has a very special hobby of pruning and grafting trees into exotic and curious shapes, and naming them - Circus Trees. The above image is a "Basket Tree", and it was achieved by planting six Sycamore trees in a circular pattern and then affixing them together in a unique diamond pattern.

An American sycamore tree can often be easily distinguished from other trees by its mottled exfoliating bark, which flakes off in great irregular masses, leaving the surface mottled, and greenish-white, gray and brown. The bark of all trees has to yield to a growing trunk by stretching, splitting, or infilling; the Sycamore shows the process more openly than many other trees.
