These are shaped by weaving over 600 chestnut branches and 6,000 meters of hazel branches round 1,800 fir poles, joined along with wooden, nails, and string to help 80 hornbeam saplings. The rising saplings will kind the columns and their canopies will prime the constructing with attractive steep arcs.
