vanishedone commented on the word arbortecture
D.R.B.: 'Today a growing number of tree grafters, arborsculptors and botanical architects are working to create new organic forms. Among them are Richard Reames who coined the phrases arborsculpture and arbortecture.'Richard Reames grows and shapes tree trunks using the ancient arts of grafting, framing, bending and pruning. Reames believes that his living arborsculptures could one day replace many of the things that trees are typically killed to make.'
