Once again, a lovely tree and wonderful progression, thanks for sharing. If I may ask a question; at the very top of the apex there appear to be multiple branches coming from one spot. Will this create bulging in that area that is unwanted? Thanks again for posting this inspiring tree.

virtual photographie in the future : , it's better when the head of the tree look to the first branch, more compact crown, the first branch longer

Hi Roland

Fantastic tree and an excellent progression series! It's threads like this that make the IBC forum such a useful and inspiring resource for novices like me.

I'm also in the early stages of developing a European Hornbeam and if I could see the kind of success next season that you've had this season I would be more than happy. The increase in ramification in such a short time is particularly impressive.

I'd be really interested in hearing how you achieved this. You talked in an earlier post about possible defoliation. Did you do this? Full or partial or just pruning or a combination?

Sorry for the questions but whatever you did obviously worked so I'd be fascinated to know.

Thanks for continuing to post updates.

Regards

Richard

I like it very much the way it is.

I would just let a top leader grow freely for a season to improve it.

There is definitely a lot of room for improvement, but its nice to get some positive feedback and encouraging word, thanks guys:)

I put together a summary of four photos which ware taken each year from 2010 until 2013.

One of the best threads as far as the deciduous tree branch structure is concerned I have ever read here on IBC. And great looking wild tree for sure.

It is just a little bit pitty that the newly built apex has not been given enough time to get more girth.

Hi Bobby,

Very, very nice tree.

Of course, a tree can't be "perfect", but I like it a lot the way it is now.

If you can refrain from "carving" it, it will be even better in a couple of years.

Good job, man Cool

This is an old thread. id imagine if the tree is still alive, the apex would be complete now such is the fast growth rate of hornbeam.

I think that the apex will still show the same thing even now.  I believe you should get the diameter of top leader up to 60-70% the one of the previous part of the trunk before you start working on the ramification there.  Then cut it hard and build another section based on the same principle, etc.  Clearly you have to bear this in mind once you do the first chop of the top otherwise the tree may have problematic proportions.  
Well, this is at least my belief. But being a Freshmen I am always happy and ready to learn something new...

Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't look at the date.

I hope it's still alive.
