Oriental hornbeam #2

Oriental hornbeam, Carpinus orientalis. I might exhibit this one for the first time ever this year.

Mr. Pall this tree is absolutely awesome. It is perfect proof of your nature way in bonsai design. This tree looks like you have taken one from the meadow and put it in the pot:-)

Fantastic tree and incredible development in so short time. Thanks for all your great posts this year and wish you all the best in 2013.

I agree with the above comments; Outstanding tree!

I notice, looking at these hornbeams, that there is a ring of "warts" that rounds the trunk at the original soil level. Is there any technique to blend this in? (It's not a show-stopper, though)

Dave,

these warts are typical for the species. I just make them typical for the image of an adult tree. I think they add interest.
