It depends on the branch's moisture content. Dry branches break if you try to bend them. The greater the moisture content of the branch, the further you can bend it before it breaks. Manufacturers who need to bend wood, for example when making Musical Instruments or wooden wheels, put it in a steamer to increase the moisture content. Immediately after removing the wood from the steamer, the worker bends the wood into the shape he/she wants then clamps the wood to hold that shape until it dries.

Why are trees in snowy areas conical in shape?

Trees in snowy areas are conical in shape to prevent overwhelming amounts of snow from piling up on the branches and foliage. A large bushy tree would college huge amounts of snow on the top, easily breaking the branches and eventually killing the tree. The conical shape, with branches growing perpendicularly out of a vertical trunk allows the branches to bend slightly downward due to the extra weight of the snow without breaking, minimizing the amount of snow that may pile up on the branches.


What causes a weeping willow to bend over?

The weeping willow "Salix babylonica" is a deciduous tree. In the summer when it puts out new leaves it also extends branches. Instead of reaching up or sideways these branches hang towards the ground. This effect makes the tree look like it is bending over.

They continue to weave branches into this until they make a platform. Third, they cover the platform in a layer of soft leaves, saving the softest for a pillow-like lump at the top.
