This is my second Hornbeam and I’m cutting back just the same as my more upright first Hornbeam. These are from the same guy but not bought at the same time, about a year appart. Both trees grown from seed, so Bonsai right from the start !
Good extension growth. I trim to the last 2 leaves.
The result from it’s last cut back, about 5-6 weeks ago.
A nice lighter image.
