DH showed me that article. That would be fun is one had the patience (which isn't me).
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we can't eat money. Cree proverb

Arborsculpture is fascinating! A braid might be a more reasonable first project? Any trees that inosculate (fuse together) are candidates for this.

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The 2nd best time is now.

In this area rustic furniture is often made from "river willow" which often grows in creeks. It would be an interesting experiment to use this method on river willow. For one thing it is a fast grower.

Did anyone attempt a project? Espalier? Arborsculpture? Pleaching?

This is insanely interesting. Have you considered using grape vines to make similar aborscultures?
