who is an artist and professor at Syracuse University,
a research university in New York City,
has created this tree using chip grafting.
This grafting process
involves slicing a bit of a branch
with a bud from a tree of one of the varieties
and inserting it into a slit in a branch on the "working tree,"
then wrapping the wound with tape
until it heals and the bud starts to grow into a new branch.
