Tom, Your hornbeam is very nice ! never see one styled this way. are you planning to leave .stumps as it is now ? the ficus is also looking good also. do you keep your tropicals at the university for winter ?? i have lost most all my trees for different reasons now i have 5 outside 2 inside ,, none of them looking like any of yours or any of the rest of the people here.. i have lost it i guess!!! anyway great job with your trees.. take care john

Thanks to you all....I appreciate your input. John: please try not to get discouraged....we all lose trees from time to time. I do keep a few tropical at the university greenhouse during the winter months...most of them, however, reside in my garage under fluorescents during the cold weather.

Best, Tom

Actually, he was a S. African landscape artist who specialized in landscapes designs that looked African. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacobus_Hendrik_Pierneef

Indeed, Jim.....This guy is only 7.5 inches in height.....I wish the same company made them in a more "grown up" size....10 inches in height would have been ideal. Maybe someone will chime in regarding a possible source for such an item.

Thanks.
