It looks like the outer roots are -dying- in trouble.

Not really, they are creating more character.

Interessting trunk movement and nebari Walter. I really like this tree.

One quick question: I've got a European beech in the full ground (3-5 years old). What can I do to speed the trunk size up?

Walter Pall said...

Marc, feed very much, water much, full sun, let grow one season, then cut back ruthlessly. Do this for twenty years and you might get close to the quality of these plums. No kidding.

I've got the time. Thanks!

Walter, when do you "cut back ruthlessly" ? Fall ? Winter ? Early spring ?
Thx for your answer

The best time is when I have scissors in my hand. The very best time is in the middle of summer, like June/July.
I don't know where this constant question comes from. It is always possible to cut.
