I love beech. Unfortunately they cannot survive in Attica's climate. I've tried once and know this first hand....

Hi thanks

We must be happy with the trees we have, and get the best out of them as bonsai..it makes it more interesting for us all, to trawel and see Smile 

I saw a candidate or 3, but I am not sure I want to collect, I have many bonsai, and would prefer one beech with a bigger trunk.

They are eaten by deers, in the sice of whitetails..they have done a good job, the trees are quit nice, and not just eaten from the top dawn.

Kind regards Yvonne

Khaimraj,

I know how you feel, its all about perspective....There are some folks who think that we who live in a climate of perpetual summer where continued growth year round is possible are extremely lucky!!!

(tongue in cheek) Very Happy 

Later,
Nigel

Hee hee,
Nigel,

I had a similar experience to Yvonne's some months back [ no photos though] and it was at the side of a drain / roadworker cut zone. Found another type of tree or shrub [ unidentified thus far ] that was resprouting, looked very much like our giantess amidst the wee trees.
Stay Well.

It is funny to find trees looking like bonsais already ...maybe I should go back and take a closer look...the tree I am sitting next to, does actully look a kind of nice....if, I want to dig, will I need a permission, I dont think it will dificult...

Kind regards Yvonne.....maybe other people found miniforrests...please feel free to show them here Smile

Hi Daniel

Lovely Photos....you have done a lot of work on the raft...I hope it will be a nice bonsai of yours for many years.

I have two rafts...a 3 trunked collected winged spindle, with old bark, and a acer palmatum with 14 trunks as far as I remember, from a branch I have rooted...this tree is still young, but it is one of the most funny trees to work with.

Kind regards Yvonne

Thanks Yvonne, I hope to see your rafts bonsai, you have a tread from view?

My raft I 've built with a beech branch, much rooting hormone and vitamin B to roots below. I have no pictures (2006) but this design is indicative of how I started with the branch for the raft. Excuse my English but it is bad. Rolling Eyes Evil or Very Mad 



Thanks again , best regards , Daniel Very Happy

Hi Daniel

My written english is bad too...much better when I talk with people...it is my problems with spelling, that make me write short, and to use Google makes it not easy to understand.
It is easy to recognise the tree tree from the drawing, with time will it become really nice.

I have not shown my rafts....maybe this Winter, but not now...

kind regards Yvonne
