Espalier Fruit Trees for our orchard. Espalier = the horticultural and ancient agricultural practice of controlling woody plant growth originally for the production of fruit,by pruning and tying branches to a frame so that they grow into a flat plane, frequently in formal patterns, against a structure such as a wall, fence, or trellis.

Espalier Lemon. Doesn't need to be in a super formal shape; just prune the parts that grow into your walking area... although you may not want to grow it this high since an orchard ladder will be hard to get up into the horseshoe pit.
