This is the best image of a tanuki that I could find.

Back from Noelanders Trophy

It was not allowed to photograph inside the exhibit. Only my own trees I could take a picture of.  One of my students got formal permission to photograph ALL trees. He shows them here:

BFF Noelanderst Trophy

Please honor copyright. Absolutely no copying of photographs for showing somewhere else!

Here is what I have collected as images from several sources. I thank all the photographers!

Off to NoelandersTrophy

Tomorrow morning I will start for the long journey. I hope to meet many of you right there.
I have a lot of Biotreecleaner and wood hardener in my car. If you are interested, just speak to me.

European hornbeam #13

European hornbeam, Carpinus betulus, collected in Germany in 2004, first images of 2007, when I acquired the tree. The last images with the slab are virtuals, of course. This one I have neglected for a long time, partially because it is too heavy to carry it alone. And then I was not so sure whether it was really good enough for my collection. After the final styling now I am sure.
