I found this wild Beech in the forest 5 years ago. It was a small shrub with lots of small low branches stuck between a few bigger brothers. I supposed it wouldn’t amount to a proper tree and since it was allready in a good starter shape I dug it up. Usually beeches don’t have a lot of viable low/short branches with buds close to the trunk, but this one did so in the pot it went. The movement of the trunk in particular was the reason I had to take it home. I like local species and eventhough european beeches are really hard to form I have a soft spot for them.
This is the first year, just after the relocation. I still left some branches on to have some buds further away on the branches as backup.
As strong as beeches can be when you treat them right it started…
