Pleached Trees at San Francisco Opera House

Trees SFIn the Spring, these sycamore trees must be lovely but in the Winter they seem on the menacing side. Pleaching is the art of training a line of trees to form a flat plane on bare trunks. Like a hedge raised on sticks. This landscaping technique, was used commonly in 17th and 18th century Italian and French design to establish architecture in the garden. The opera house was lit in green and red for the holidays, people were out walking and chatting, it was all a view from a snow globe.
