I have a client that has a tree that use to have little cubes shaped all in it. I was wondering if anybody has done this and if knew how to find the measurements out on it or even a good photo.

I'm lost. Is it all about training the tree to make the shapes?

its called a "topiary" topiary= pain in the azz in this area because things grow so fast even with growth regulators they are a pain.

It takes a lot of work and the right tree to do something like that. I'm guessing all the new growth is tied together and allowed to graft to each other as the stems grow bigger.
