One more european hornbeam from my very first trees. What is isteresting and instructive for me on this tree is the movement of the trunk, which was much more twisted in early years. By freely growing in the field curves became more smooth.
The low bar branches are not good. I don´t want to cut one of them right now, because I think I would emphasise the boring straight middle part of the trunk. At the back side of the trunk is a one-year old branch, which will replace one of these bar branches. I miss some roots on the left side of a nebari, but I fear to graft them. I will put this one to it´s first pot next spring :)
2009, rok pred výchovným rezom. One year before drastic pruning.
