Carpinus Betulus 4-year progress

This Carpinus Betulus is with me from 2010 when I collected it in a forest near to my house.

In four years of development the tree made good progress and I'm happy with the current image.

Of course the tree needs a lot of additional development and many things can be improved. For instance in the upper right area a primary branch is missing. To improve this area I had to "borrow" one branch from the left side and in a couple of growing seasons the new branch will be the same size and in complete proportion with the left side.
