Great rescue Tony.
My instinct would probably have been to maintain the original styling (which was outstanding) and to try to find a suitable rock that the hollowed out section of the tree could fit snugly against, all in a new pot. Although tricky to get just right.
Good job

Hi Justin "Although tricky to get just right" is key to your comments. Finding the perfect pot is one of the biggest challenges with the art of bonsai. Clearly the best is to commission a talented potter (lots on this forum) by taking the tree to them, discussing the possibilities, making a couple of options, and selecting the most suitable... even after all the effort, it may not be JUST right. In all my years of potting trees I can honestly say that only once has the match been 'perfect' that being David Barlows Raft beech, potted in a Gorden Duffet pot. (Anyone got a photo?).

The best anyone can hope for is 'best match' as for this tree pot combination I guess Lee summed it up ' Wabi Sabi' beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature.

Yes... I was over in the North... Beautiful country... great people... I cannot wait to return. cheers

As for this trees development... I am aware that the rotting on the tree does extend along the trunk and I will be investigating this over the weekend, if indeed it is rotten I will clear it out and see what transpires... watch this space.

Absolutely Tony... an extremely frustrating point for me is the lack of stock in pots here in South Africa, especially large ones.
I am very envious of you lot up north.

I think may be an important interesting zone

Hi Ivo I have done the work on the cut, The tree is very secure in the pot but to be on the safe side I strapped the tree to the work table, I have left the new growth near the carving to keep the sap flowing and callus the wound.

Here is the cut before the work



Strapping to the table



here is the final work

As you can see the foliage is coming on well... the tree definately benifited from repotting.
