Progress of a Fagus Sylvatica - European Beech from 2003

Post  Herbert A on Fri Oct 25, 2013 11:37 pm

In may 2003 i collected a Fagus sylvatica.



The tree had no good nebari. But we will see what we can do.



First pot.



Four weeks later he made leaves.



Most of the branches were too long and too thick. So i had to cut back hard 7 weeks after collecting.

Next spring i grafted some new roots. I drilled a hole through the trunk and pulled by a root.



This picture was made 5 years after collecting.



Spring 2011, 8 years after collecting. The ramification gets better and better.



Spring 2013. The tree gets a nice pot.
But first let´s see the roots i graftet 8 years ago.



August 2013



Now in autumn he has a nice colour.

I love Fagus sylvatica, native plant of my woods.

This is your very natural beech, you've done a great job over the years. Compliments.  

Best regards , Daniel

Hi Herbert

I like your tree Smile 

Will it be possible to cut the root here ( Black line), and the root will still grow?...or are you planning just to keep this bend deep in the soil.
No matter what, is it a very nice idea I will remember and use


Kind regards Yvonne

Hallo Yvonne,

i hope i understand your question. This is a graftet root. I drilled a hole trough the trunk and pulled a root trough. I cutet the donating part of the root that was on the backside of the trunk 2 years ago.

So the root is fused with the trunk and grows quite normal as every other root.

Kind regards
Herbert

I like your beech very much. Do you use partial defoliation after the spring flush of leaves to get buds back toward the trunk? And when you cut back your branches 7 weeks after collecting, how many buds did you cut back to if you can remember?
Thanks for sharing, nice fall color!

Hi Judy

JudyB wrote:Do you use partial defoliation after the spring flush of leaves to get buds back toward the trunk?
I do not use partial defoliation but i pinch the buds before they open. Inside the brown bud there are 6-8 tiny leaves. I take the top of the bud between two fingers and pull on it. Then remain still two or three leaves. Which causes short internodes.

This is the moment i pinch the buds.



In the middle of june i reduze the size of the leaves. So light and sun comes to the branches and weak up new buds inside. This is also very good that the tree does not get mealybugs.







No, i don´t remember how many buds i cut 7 weeks after collecting, but i have a Foto Laughing 



I hope i could answer your questions.

Kind regards

Thank you very much for your answers Herbert. The photos are really very helpful. I've always taken whole leaves off in June I will try the cutting instead this next year.
Thanks again!

Hi Herbert,

I like what you have done with this tree. I have a question regarding any pests you may or may not have had. Last year I noticed a sort of white puss and other white things around it on the underside of some leaves. What kind of bug or insect is this? I would rub them off with my hands and then spray them with water that had new zeolit pieces in it; I read somewhere that you can cut the exoskeleton and kill many bugs this way without introduction poisons at all.

Do you have any experience with these white flys or bugs at all and what I can do to avoid them?

Also towards fall (autumn) time I noticed some orange like stuff on the main trunk, but it wasn't thick and paste-like more like small droplets and they were hard.

Thank you!

Thomas
