Hornbeam without foliage in the stage when went into winter storage a few days ago. A middle part of the crown (on the left side of the first picture) was severely cut back in spring and now it will be regrown during the next few seasons. Long branch growing from the top of the lower sub trunk will have to be regrown as well. No new buds this season so it will be cut back in spring 2019 and regrown (visible on picture 5). Some minor editing was done a few weeks ago but major works need to be postponed until mid-spring.
|Long branch growing the top of the lower sub trunk lacks taper and needs to be reworked.|
|Two highest branches will be cut back as well.|
