new carpinus

This is a hornbeam which was collected in Italy. I think it is Carpinus orientalis, but the Italian use some other name for it. Anyway, it is a very fat and interesting piece of material. I'm considering doing this as demo at the Noelandes Tropyh in January 2010. All big names do conifers and it would be refreshing to do a deciduous tree as major demo.
