... a wonderful specimen, Ed. I always liked hornbeam, it's true that after my collection capabilities are more familiar with the europeans. Congratulations to the hornbeam, and thanks for sharing this wonder with us.

Hi Ed
Is there a slight unusual leaf curl going on here. Maybe I am imagining it because I recently got through a season of Fungus attack in Australia and this curve/cup in the leaf was a tell tale sign in hornbeam.

I hope not it is a great looking tree!

I really liked this tree but, Im thinking about the base there. How does it look from the sides?
To me, with the opening under the tree, I felt it would be weird that if its a big old tree in nature, it would fall over, or crack the root to the left.
Have you considered filling it up?

, there are plenty of trees in nature with big holes in the base of the trunk.

I really like this Ed. I like the feature at the base but I think it would look better if you dropped it slightly in the pot. It would look like a massive old hollowed tree.

now you say Will about dropping it down I have only just seen that there is no back to the hollow . I thought the hollw was only at the front and that the trunk at the back went down to the soil. I agree it would look better lowered a bit.

Maybe the next time I re-potted this tree,I will look if it is better to plant it deeper or not.
I will show you if I done this next year or so Very Happy
