My Korean Hornbeam was very slow to drop leaves this Autumn. This was it on the 15th November!

Disappearing Bit by Bit

This old tree is a bit of a landmark if you live in Bangor County Down. It can be seen from the road when travelling from Bangor to Holywood. It’s in a now famous field as Rihanna cavorted around in it during the Summer and got told off by a local farmer 🙂

Michael over on his futterwithtrees blog photographed it back in December 2011 but as you can see, recent storms have reduced the tree even further.

This is Michaels shot last year

and mine from last weekend

Ready for some thinning out but I’m trying to increase the canopy size.

Cork Bark Elm Winter Image

I eventually got around to taking a few snaps of this Cork Bark Elm yesterday.

I’m trying to keep a decent record of it through the years to capture how the ramification improves.

It’s field grown tree and this is now it’s 3rd year in a pot from collection.

Grown from a cutting, it’s taken 11 years to get it to this point.
