Repotting a 100kg Carpinus

Post  Sebastijan Sandev on Sun Apr 01, 2012 8:03 pm

After two years growing in a training wooden box, it's time to repot my biggest deciduous tree. Quite a task. Tree weights (with a box and substrate) something less than 100kg. Between the roots it even has a pretty large rock.
For this job I need a winch...a power puller. And I'm so happy ...it's over...I did it today, what a relief Very Happy
See the whole story here: http://sandevbonsai.blogspot.com/2012/04/transplanting-huge-carpinus.html with a complete tree history and collection story in detail...

That is a monster. Love the base, but with trees that size some might get "carpinus envy!" Very Happy Very Happy

What an imposing size! Who's got the largest, right?
Then again, bonsai is not a dick measuring contest.

Sorry but I disagree. It is about the quality of the material (big or small).

I have to admit, I like big trees but with the weight, pot cost, and space limitation...I plan on concentrating on small-medium sized trees in the future.

Please remember there are junior members on this forum. There is no need to use that particular word.

But of course! Had it been size alone, it would already be a million dollar tree. And this would be a billion dollar one. ;-)

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't think it was a bad word.
I mean, I heard it many times on the news when they mentioned a certain former US vice president. It must have been hard for him having had such a name.
I apologize again.

And now serously...

I really do not care if the tree is big...huge...or small...or medium size...when I go collecting, I just search for a good catch, I search for a good yamadori.
But, sometimes, it maybe depends of the year...I noticed that, some years I am just lazy and not very keen to collect a monster tree No ...so I will rather leave it alone...then again, some other years, I simply do not perceive smaller stuff, like I'm only searchin for monsters affraid . That is a question of mood or even that particular year's fashion...I guess. confused
But, I feel free to indulge myself considering that issue. Why not? If I feel for a shohin size...I will look for something similar...If I feel for a monster quest...it will be a monster, who cares.
Usually, If for a few years was a monster trees fashion, I get bored of that so smaller things come on the schedual
Question

I'm pretty sure, yes. Then again, I could be wrong. I'm merely a lowly junior member. ;-)

According to my ever increasing back problem...and also the fact that I'm getting older...I think smaller trees will be a favoured option...

I am a bit tyred...and broken.. over the years with this monster stuff

You'd better stick to smaller bushes then.
OMG, I said bush! This bonsai vocabulary is really strange. ;-)

Favored is the right term...since I bet you cannot resist digging another monster if you find a good specimen. Wink It is in your blood.

I know I can't. Wink

This tree, together with few others, will be a part of my private session with my master Walter Pall. Under the project International Bonsai Academy with Walter Pall, Walter will be in my garden in three weeks time. We plan to do styling of couple of trees and he will comment and speak about lot of important aspects in styling and horticulture. Everything will be video recorded and published on the internet as a series of films covering that event.
So, I am waiting for Walter..
