Can I ask about it's past? Was it an import when you first got it and how long has it been in your training?

It really does convey the expression of a of the Zelkova.
Hi Gary,

oh yes it is a japanese tree. It was selected summer 2012 from the nursery of M. Kimura by a friend of mine Doug while he was on a buying trip.


The tree arrived in the UK Jan 2013 when I went to visit it in QT Very Happy . The tree was cleared to collect at the end of April so I drove the 1200 mile round trip as quickly as I could ! Moving the tree to our milder location caused a growth explosion and by May I was taking cuttings and have been pruning extensions ever since. The original outline was quite irregular so I allowed some areas to fill before defoliating, as the timeline pics below show.



Far more leaves were the result of the new flush of growth so last week the tree was thinned quite hard - all upper shoots were reduced to one leaf and all lower shoots were cut back to 2 leaves. now I can see light through all the tree. Winter is the time for this one to really shine although autumn could be nice for a week or so too.

Magnificent tree!

Of course you have crafted many magnificent trees over the years and as a regular visitor to your blog and web site I'm familiar with some of them. This Beech however is a personal favourite.

Thanks for sharing it with the forum.
