larch and stuff

hybrid larch, larix deciduaxkaempferi
European hornbeam, Carpinus betulus, a fat broom in the making. It will take another five to ten years before this looks good. It is perfectly fine if in the early state such a tree looks very ugly; as long as one does the right thing. Like cutting back further than one wants really.
Cornus mas, dogwood after only two years in training.

the cornus is amazing...reminds me of very old penjing. those with the rock-like trunks.
