These are the people who were inspired by others to shape trees. This group of people had various influences, which started them on the path of shaping trees. For some it was writings, drawings, photos of shaped trees or existing shaped trees.
These inspired people fall into two groups.
The ones that took the initial spark and developed it to try to make it a reality.
The ones that saw the shaped trees, were so impressed by them that they would work towards understanding how the trees were shaped.
As the shaping methods become more defined, the path will become clearer and many devotees will follow.
