Does that second tree grow that way, or is it the art of fancy pruning? [dunno]

This is ONLY a guess, but I beieve that the tree is a Flowering Cherry "Mt Fuji" (Prunus serrulata 'Shirote') It is often used to create this tiered effect because of the tendency toward horizontal growth.

The flower buds start out pink, then turn white as they open. Mt. Fuji eventually grows to 20 ft. tall and wide, is hardy in zones 5-8, prefers full sun and moist soil.

The tiered effect is created by a nurseryman who spends a lot of time pruning and shaping (over a couple years time) when the tree is young.
