A couple of Beeches (Fagus syl.)

Heya!

Here's a couple of Beeches I've been working with. The first one I dug last spring and the other one was dug today. Ideas and styling advice is welcome!

Cut back hard and carve.

I guess if you found them near the parent tree, you could call them "Sons of Beeches" Rolling Eyes Wink

Hi Rob!

Yup, the first one is definetly up for carving but I thought I'd wait a couple of seasons (or more). Here's a virt I did at scanbonsai.com.



The other one I'm not sure will be subject for carving. I think the taper will be good enough for a believable upright slender tree?

Regards
Emil

The problem with beeches is that they sprout a lot of branches, but they never sprout a branch where you want it!

The tree may dictate what you do with it in the end, not your wishes. <g>
