Thank you Dorothy and others. I'm pretty happy with the progress this tree has made this year.

I was just scrolling down thru this post, and after the February 2013 picture post, was just thinking, wow, I bet this tree would look amazing without leaves....and boy was I right. This is a stunning tree, I really love hornbeams and this is a superior one! Have you ever shown it?

I've never been to a show. Never displayed my trees except on the internet. But, thanks, that's a nice compliment.

One month after trimming... I did not defoliate this tree a month ago, but merely trimmed the tips of  every(with a few exceptions)twig. Over the last month the older leaves have fallen. It sometimes looked as if it was dying as all the older leaves turned yellow and gradually fell. They're almost all gone and the new growth is a light bright green.

Thanks Sorce.

Herman,

I repot once every year or two. I think I last repotted this one last year. It hs a lot of small roots crawling across the top of the soil right now and is in need of a cleanup. I'll probably root prune and repot when this new growth hardens off.
