Eric,
The tree and pot are individually excellent and as composition even better. This tree just needs some more ramification to complete the "naturalistic" style. A neutral background (screen) would be useful to eliminate the distracting background. Great work.

thanks guy,s.

about the tree:the tree is from a nursery were it was dismissed for sale.
it was already bin rotten,that,s why he's hollow.
i removed the rotten place's and gave it a drastic cut back.
now i have to make ramification to make it a nice bonsai.

so long

Beech is a very character. Excellent is that for her, does not say, "... ah another beech ..." , and start to look more, the beech remains in memory as different and it's awesome.
Bravo!

Fagus fascinated me, so I have not commented on the pot, but pot contributions under composition. Excellent pot my friend! Wink

First business people, then common folk, then children, and now.. NOW the TREES have cell phone plans. Bet the darn thing has better coverage then I do.


Very cool tree. I want to see it leafed out! Looks like it will be swell. How much ramification have you gotten, in how long a time?

70% of the buds that are now on the tree is a result of 2 years pruning.

Really nice Eric ( and Andy) !
Man those beeches are sure slow to ramify huh?
I have a collected beech from quite a few years back, SLOWLY ramifying. It looked good a few years back and then rabbits snacked on all my ramification over one winter with lots of snow. So, we started again!

With beeches the key to pinching new leaves is to just stand out in the yard for a few days and just pinch each one as they unfurl! Smile

Beautiful tree Eric…I particularly like the impressive taper. With regards to the ramification, have you read the excellent article on Beech ramification on Bonsai 4 me.com? Smile

The ramification will be easy given time. The leaf size may be difficult. I have large Beech with leaves 20mm but my "shohin" will not reduce it's leaf size.
I have been working with this tree 12 years. pale
Sorry, forgot to say, Great tree.
