A Table Shaped Tree
If I wanted to grow a tree into the shape of a table, i.e. tall straight trunk and a large horizontal disk shaped canopy, what should I go for? Especially if I wanted to grow a particularly large tree table. I know that I could do something with box or similar, but I'm wondering if there is something more naturally this shape that would need less adjustment from its natural form. It might be useful for providing natural shade in urban areas where vandalism is common and a nice straight cover could be applied to protect the trunk, but also I would like one for my garden as a semi ornamental giant(s) table. Happy to grow from seed, can't afford a large garden yet anyways.
