I feel that I should declare something upfront becaus I'm a Tree surgeon.
Forgive the intrusion, but I have just published a book describing some new research into trees and specifically, how to understand their structures and then, how to simulate the kind of natural ageing process in what I call simulated wind pruning.
That probably sounds self serving so let me add that it is available on Kindle and in just a few days it will be made available as a free download.
All I will say is that once you have read it, and if it touches you, I would ask you to consider leaving a review.
You can find out more by visiting www.TreeMorphogenesis.com
I mention this here because two of the five case histories that I have included at the end of the book, concern tree management that we have applied to Beech trees in the UK. Not weeping Beech I hasten to add, but believe it or not, the morphological traits that apply to upright Beech also apply to weeping Beech (only they are expressed differently).
If when you have read the book you want me to explain that more fully I would be only too happy to discuss it with you and if you could send a picture to me at or post one here we could discuss specifics of your tree.
