Wow, what a great tree. The only thing i see as a problem is the base of the trunk. Do you have inverse taper? Is that why the rocks are there? If so do you have any plans to correct it?

Neil, Grapevine trunks do not have a nebari, that's not the way their roots form or fatten close to the trunk. So, this is very normal for this type of plant. Yes, the tree is a bit thiner close to the ground level, but that doesn't bother me at all. This is altogether a different and unusual tree, and such "mistakes" can be forgiven... Don't look at it as a Fagus or a tree, look at it as a vine as it is Smile
