this is an expeiramental styling...2 trees were growing next to each other and the larger had a low fork so i braided them. my plan is to cut the top and continue the braiding and making a bujin style maybe

Nice material. The maples sound like the japanese elms here, they are everywhere. The small elms I have were just pulled out of the yard, no digging, if they have at least three feeder roots they survive. I like braid, was thinking about doing that to some elms. Will they fuse together or would they need help?

Trees thicken with growth. If they encounter en object that is in the way and not moving, the bark will grow around it. With other trees of the same species this will result in fusing. You just need to make sure the stems stay together and they should fuse. When tying with rope / wire: Make sure you replace in time!
