    Large chunky european hornbeam stump styling

    Hi folks, I've managed to acquire this incredible european hornbeam stump. It has been initially styled by the previous owner but my concern is that it only has three, high-up, primary branches, two of which emanate from practically the same spot, with the first branch having been wired down in...

    Girdle Technique on Hornbeam

    In winter 2021, I purchased a couple of pencil-thin bareroot hornbeams (European) for very cheap from a local supplier, with the intention of practicing bonsai techniques on them. I found a spot in my garden to plant the trees, and put them through washers which were positioned above the roots...

    Lost as to what is wrong with my Hornbeam

    I’m still struggling to figure out what’s wrong with my American Hornbeam. A ton of leaves have these black spots showing up on them.

    European Hornbeam Stalled

    My first time with a hornbeam but I found them interesting because of their legendary vigor. I picked up this nice pre-bonsai from a guy back in the early spring (this year) and it did precisely one thing: leafed out (as you can see), but nothing else. Meanwhile my other trees have been like...

    I’m wondering if anyone has the answer to this. I’ve noticed some new growth on my Hornbeam has started to develop this brown edges to them. The edges while brown, are not crispy or dry when they first develop. My tree is kept in the shade for as long as possible throughout the day, but gets...

    Help! Worried my hornbeam has a fungal infection.

    I’ve started to notice these black spots, burnt edges, and holes developing in some of my hornbeam leaves. At first I thought it was sunburn but after hearing many people discuss how their hornbeams can tolerate full sun I am starting to think it’s a fungal infection. The tree does seem semi...

    European hornbeam

    This hornbeam had to be removed from a garden and that allowed me to collect it and try to make something out of it. It has been collected end of December, not ideal but leaving it longer was no option. I removed a large part of the roots, the taproot and lower sidetroots, and there are only...
