Hi everyone, I talked Dad into taking me collecting today. We were suppose to go to the pine barrens tomorrow but he said it would be to cold. So we went near the farm instead. We walked about ten miles and I found this American Hornbeam at the end of our walk. Score one for Taylor and zero for Dad. I think it has some good possibilities. a good nebari for yamadori. It also has some good taper to. A small shoot that I will make as a new leader is in the right place. It has a second trunk that I have two choices with I think. The first is to chop it off. The second is to either make it a low branch or maybe a second trunk. I think it might sit to high for that choice. Anyone have any ideas on this second trunk let me know. Hope you like it. I had a lot of fun collecting it.
