Look at what I’ve found! UPDATE!!

Post  Mr Miyagi on Tue Feb 28, 2012 2:57 pm

Definitely one of my best collections so far this year. Came up in about 10 minutes with a fair amount of roots. It was growing at the base of a large pine and was subsequently growing in its dead needles. It had no large tap root that needed cutting. I am quite confident of the trees survival or be it a little early in my zone for collecting beech. Will now be given a daily dose of Rhizotonic and kept in the poly tunnel.

That is just absolutely AWESOME!

Collected from the pine needle mulch at the base of a tree, see... it just goes to show the kind of acidity Beech prefers.

I think a few folks on this forum know what Beech nut (get it?) I am, and I am just green with envy.

Have you worked with Fagus before?

Hi Mr. Miyagi

It looks like a nice beech. Look forward to see it later this year with the leaves Smile.

I also have a beech to collect, but was given the advise to wait untill the leaves starts to move. It is almost a year sinese I saw it, and I wonder if it is as good as I remember.

Kind regards yvonne

Unusual to see that amount of deadwood in a beech - but it all looks like the result of heavy pressure; rocks, branches falling on the tree. From the extent of callousing around the breaks/cuts - it looks quite old. It takes a beech a very long time to make callous and heal wounds like those visible in this tree. With the right crown it should look very compelling as a mountian beech - very cool tree.....Good Luck...Tom

Hi all, I have a few beech trees, But I’ve had mixed success. Yvonne is definitely right that the success rate is greatly increased if the tree is collected when the leaves start to show green. (Good luck with yours Yvonne.) Defiantly want to keep the tree looking natural. Will probably look to bring some of the branches down and around to the front more but will leave it be for a few years and see how it gets on.
Thanks all for your comments.

Thank you.
What does the lack of attention while reading do...
I'm sorry.

But the problem is quite the same,as I wandered the last saturday through my collection area(a forest located close to my grandmother's house) and found none,but still,in one day I can't search the whole forest,this will be made the weeks to come.

very nice tree

i would cut back the branches atleast 2/3 to reduce the foliage in the spring as it will put a lot of pressure on the disturbed roots. they will back bud anyway. you probably know the saying when you collect trees bring a handful of mother earth back with you and through it in the pot with the tree. mycorrhiza is the thing

The tree is as nature made her. Only collected about an hour before the posting. The nebari does stretch out a fair amount under the soil. Always the possibility of shortening but I wouldn’t want to lose the dead section. Smile

Hi Jesse,
It is in pure moler clay (Sophisticat cat litter), as are all my collected trees. It’s pretty cheap in my area.
