Can you imagine the thrill of discovering a tree that you never knew existed? I'd like to introduce you to the Hornbeam. It's got the same beautiful smooth bark as a beech, but is in the birch family.
This hornbeam-bodybuilder is looking back over his shoulder, making sure I check out his muscular physique.
The ultra-smooth bark of this lovely arms-raised tree-ballerina is a perfect canvas for the leaves to paint their shadow pictures.
And, why not finish with a tree-kickboxer! I'm not surprised another name for the hornbeam is musclewood. Message: Strength comes in all shapes and sizes. Experience the thrill of finding your undiscovered strength.
