Carpinus orientalis restyling

I was not happy with structure of the tree. So I made some major redesign. Apex was removed and tree will be shorter in the future. Few branches were also removed. Whole tree was wired. Now it will shoot new leaves in few days. Top part of the crown must be developed in next few years. I will work on dead wood soon. Challenging tree I would say. 

Now after styling

Recently just before restyling

In August 2010 just after arriving into my garden from my visit at Walter Pall garden.
