Strange request from a client

Recommended Posts

In the first photo their is 2 oaks, the one on the right i was asked to reduce buy 50%.

 

Then the weird bit, apparently he is gona dig around the root ball and yank it out, then clean up the roots and re plant it upside down with the roots in the air:confused1:

Apparently some architect has come up with the idea as a feature to be put in someone's garden, will post the finished product when i hear the job has finished

 

in the second pic (sorry for the poor picture quality) is the oak reduced

It was done in a school 'narure walk' I worked on,I was quite impressed as the roots upturned were willows,,,,,,must go back to see how they are growing as it was 2 years ago!

Ridiculous, pointless, yet interesting. Where would the tree grow from after being...ahem...replanted? The stem or the roots/new canopy?
