 CYPRESS BENDING WITH GUY GUIDRY

 

Mike Rogers begins the raffia.

Guy and Mike begin testing the flexibility of the Bald Cypress

Guy begins applying pressure and the bending begins

Still bending and still no loud "CRACKS"

Almost there, and still going!

The tree makes the full 180 degree bend and doesn't break

Mike and Guy begin the second bend

This is taking all they have to bend this trunk.

Finally the tree has been bent to its final shape

The starting height of this tree was 6 feet and was bent down to a height of 42 inches!
