Collecting season 2012

Post  Sebastijan Sandev on Sun Jan 22, 2012 7:08 pm

Small trees are beginning to attract my attention. Maybe I'm just fed up with big and heavy dynosaurs,,,but that doesn't mean I wouldn't collect one if I'd stumble upon it. These are just very cute...and could become impresive and powerful little trees. Hope you like them. These two are just for start and to catch form...

Nice potential, but not that small. Wink
OK, maybe smaller than usual!

Sebastijan,
You are approaching a certain age?
Nice yamadori and already in a pot.

Nice as usual. This is the ideal size for me but love the "beasts" you collected before too!

Those look to be a good size to me! Interesting trunks too. What species are they? I don't think you said, but could have missed it...

Sebastijan,
Great post and video. I have to wait until March, but I have my gear ready to go now!! I will try the strap and wench this year, as I also dig trees in very rocky soil.

Thanks for posting and wetting my appetite!

Coh,

Carpinus orientalis...we call it White hornbeam...or seaside hornbeam, one of the best if not THE BEST broadleaved species for bonsai.
Much has bees said about that species on my blog, also many many orientalises you can find on Walter Pall's blog and also lot of information there from Walter Pall about that species.

Fantastic Carpinus but I have to say that your wife is your greatest treasure! Assisting and supporting, even searching for a new material.
You're lucky man! Very Happy

I agree.

This coming weekend, my wife and daughter will accompany me on a dig too...I am counting my blessings as well. Smile Of course it will be nothing like the featured tree but a stick or a stump is enough to make me happy Very Happy

Thanks for the info! I've seen many great examples of this species on Walter's website...I've drooled over several. I wonder if there is an equivalent North American species?

I'll have to check out your blog...thanks again!
