Carpinus betulus "Vincent's forest" bonsai for sale

Recent pictures of my Hornbeam forest in autumn colours. Seems like really cold weather is coming in the next few days, so maybe there will be no better chance to capture an autumn feeling of it. 



This forest was collected by myself in 2009, and it is a unique fused group of plants connected at the base of the composition. It was growing in large wooden n box for few years and currently, it sits in meter long concrete training pot. It was several times repoted, last time this spring. It is ready for final pot or slab already. The tree is eventually for sale. If you are interested contact me with an offer. You can find its pictures of development here on the blog from 2009 onwards. Still, a lot of work to be done on the main tree, general refinement of the structure as well, but could be developed by a skilled artist to a dominant piece of any exhibition in few years time.  





Ulmus

I would like to share a few pictures of this elm. Leaves on sacrifice branch started to yellow and fall off. It was time to cut it off. 







Branch was about 2 m long as you can see it standing behind the tree

Winners of the thickness contest are Mimo and Vlad. Send me your pictures if you like to apply for the promised reward. 

Always try to keep branches close to the potential cutting point so you have some to fall back to. It is much more certain the tree will not drop the branch after cutting back. In case I would not have this branch there I would make the removing in the spring.
