Hey I could take you for a walk there are tons of small hornbeams around if you know where to look :)
But as you could guess - for one with interesting features you have to bow down and inspect 100 of them first.
I took many walks looking for material throughout winter and seen lots of them, but finished with only 3 trees
worth collecting this spring. This is 2nd of them. I am still waiting for this one to show signs of life before I collect it:




That would be it for this season (of deciduous trees).

No. I wrote details about my yamadori trees on my blog so I copy it here for you:

I didn´t need a permit for this one. There is a great orchard to be cleared anytime now that is over my village since communist times that nobody´s been taking care of for over 25 years.
Thats why there are some small hornbeams that haven´t had a chance to grow tall because of overgrown weeds and apple trees.
2 guys has been preparing trees for future bonsai in there for a few years and then suddenly large portion was cleared off without any notice to anybody and it broke their hearts. They lost some great material I was told. Áll the trees were pulled out by tractors and burned.

And recent one where I had to save an oak last minute:

Kristof, it seems as you have already built a magnificent Yamadori Hunter Party (YHP)...
