Der Ring Alzey-Weinheim

constructing Land Art "Der Ring" in Alzey-Weinheim, Germany.
Two thousand liters of water for the Hornbeam Der Ring in Alzey-Weinheim.

After planting the Hornbeam (Carpinus Betula) trees it was necessary to water them; it had been a hot and dry week. Der Ring will now begin its journey in time.

Hornbeam, also known as Ironwood, is a hardwood and can become hundreds of years old. During the Middle Ages, hornbeams were coppiced and pollarded for firewood and charcoal.  It's hard wood texture was valued for the manufacture of piano-key movements and for wooden axles and spokes.
