Der Ring Alzey-Weinheim
After planting the Hornbeam (Carpinus Betula) trees it was necessary

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.
