New pot for a big tree

Post  Sebastijan Sandev on Thu Apr 07, 2011 8:52 am

After two years of undisrupted growth, the time has come to repot this tree. This is one of my first carpinus orientalis trees, so I was still afraid if the tree will take root after collecting, how much root can I take off in the proces of collecting and so on...
Fortunately, the tree grew very strongly...as 99% of carp.orient. do after transplanting from nature.
The tree has a big and heavy rock between surface roots...not only surface roots but even more, the rock is enclosed in lower part of the trunk...that makes it impossible to remove even if I will want to do something like that. Which, of course, I won't. That makes it natural ishitsuki or root-over-rock tree.

The pot in which the tree was planted is a pinnacle of bonsai aesthetics but, that was the only one that I had and in which was possible to fit the tree.

Hi Sandev
First you called him a monster but finally you got in to the business of tree hugging?
How is the back of this tree on the moment?

Sunip!

Here's the back of the tree. It has an ugly scar...big dead and rotten branch. That is why I do not like this tree too much.
