Training Fruit Trees to Form Hedges

When visiting apple orchards in Tasmania I noted that the trees are trained to form 'hedges'. Please advise where I may learn more on this technique and limitations for other fruit trees, if possible?

I have seen this in Mother Earth magazine, and I believe they have good instructions on their website, possibly in the archives. It's a wonderful technique I'd love to try myself, once I own my own land. It is attractive, and can really save a lot of space. If Mother doesn't have complete instructions, they will probably have recommendations for other sources of information.
