Slanting birch

Post  Vlad on Mon Aug 06, 2018 9:03 am

Betula verrucosa
Height: 45 cm
Width:  60 cm
Pot: Michal Sebor

The third of my medium to large birch trees.  


I need to get the top section of the trunk a bit more thicker.  In my experience you need a lot of patience as the birches are a bit bitchy producing just long whips with minimum impact on the girth.


Lower part of the trunk with a burl ( the molehill on the right side of the shari )


Leaves far too big.  Planned deoliation should help a bit.  Apart it will improve the winter look.    


No wheeping branches this time.

Thank you, Kevin.

Pot: a gift from my friend Michal Sebor who spent +5 hours to form it based on the pics I have sent him after visiting well known blog Cool The top rim is not the way it should be but otherwise I do like it. I hope I will manage to convince him to produce some more for some of my trees.

Wow, good stuff. Love the whole thing, but that bark in particular. Makes me want to see your whole garden; you've been posting remarkable tree after remarkable tree. Was this one collected?

Thank you. You are right - it is a tree from nearby grove.

Thank you, Alexandra. It is interesting how the trees in Nature deal with the forces of gravitation. Sometimes there are massive or buttress roots that anchor the tree from the top, sometimes they are located on the other side. Either way, I find it very dramatic.

I agree Kevin. There are great hornbeams, plums and some other species from Croatia. But what about olives from South, junipers/pines from Alps/Pyrenees, yews/blackthorns from UK, junipers/pines from US?

I do agree about the Junies and Pines from the mountainous regions of the US...

I wish I lived closer to such areas... Wink

Thank you, Richard. The pot is too shallow for a thirsty birch but I was eager to use it and did not find any better fit. Need to move the birch to something with more depth next season.
