    What, are they just learning about espaliered trees now? This technique has been around for decades, at least. UBCBG's food garden has had espaliered apple and pear trees since the first time I went there over 40 years ago.

    This is a form of espaliering, which has limitless variations. UBCBG used to have an espaliered tree spelling out UBC, although I haven't seen it recently.

    It was removed with the removal of the non-scab-resistant cultivars we had been growing.
