The Art of Tree Shaping

Peter Cook and his partner Becky Northey make furniture and sculpture from trees. What’s unique about their method is that they shape the trees into predetermined objects while the trees are still growing. The name they have given this technique is Pooktre. According to their website, some designs are intended for harvest to be high quality indoor furniture and others will remain living art.

Very cool stuff but how long does it take on average? Do you use trees that have an accelerated growth rate? Do you manipulate it's growth rate at all beside shaping??

How hard is it to do and how much time/dedication does it require. I am very intrigued.
