Carpinus betulus group

This european hornbeams group planting  occured as a side-product of a much bigger project of mixed hornbeam &beech forest. In 90´s my father collected tiny seedlings of both species and put them in ground where they were regularly hedge pruned once or twice a year.

Some 15 years later with just pruning crowns and roots, these tiny trees became interesting bonsai material. In 2009 we created this forest planting with
