Question arch made with columnar aspen


I'm contemplating growing 2 Swedish Columnar Aspen - about 6 feet apart - and shaping them into an arch (so joining their tops together) as an entrance to my rose garden.

Will this harm the trees at all? Any tips on how to go about doing this? My trees are just tiny right now (about 2 feet tall) so it will be a few years before they are even tall enough to join together.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
