This is my first submission into the TofM. It is a Korean Hornbeam in its fall best. Picture taken today. The tree is approx 23 inches from the soil and 33 inches wide. This is the thread about it.

This Trident came from Don Blackmond early this spring. Here's the post for it: http://bonsaistudygroup.com/trident-maple-discussion/trident-fall-progression/?topicseen

(I'm sorry the pic is grainy... It says it's 177k on my computer and not grainy... but shows up smaller here.)
