Here are some thoughts on growing good trunks:

In order to get the roots to stay on the suface, people either use a growing box (Basically a very wide, but shallow box which allows only surafce roots to form) or place a non-penetratable layer below the roots in the ground, e.g., a tile at 4 inches below the soil surface.
