Wow! How large was the cutting in the beginning? Do you have any photographs from the time it was taken?

This was about 15 cm long and thinner than a pencil. No photograph as it was beyond imagination what would become of it.

Was the tree field or pot grown from the beginning?

Do you plan to spread/lower the branches with guy wires like you do with some other trees, or is this pretty much a final shape?

Field grown for many years.
this is the final shape. Perfect in my opinion. It's supposed to look like a linden and not like a bonsai.

A great tree to be superimposed onto a real landscape; would blend right in. A great success!
