I bought a J. Yew tree from a couple that was selling a 60 year stock of trees. This one is in a normal 5" garden pot. Its a twain truck . It slender the main trunk is only 7/8" thick and the second trunk is 3/8" thick. Total branches on the main trunk is about 15 - 20 . On the 2 trunk maybe 7. Its NOT heathy. Its totaly root bound . So much the roots have grown so much I can lift the tree out of the pot. What I want to do with this tree.
- make a shohin out of the tree. Ryan’s show’s us pruning is exemptible in later fall or early winter. I know it strength / energy is in the vascular system BUT the tree is weak.
- Because the tree is root bound and easily can be lifted out of it pot I think its need to be repotted now. Why b/c the roots have grown 1/2" to 1" thick into a circle of roots on the bottom of pot to force it out of the pot. Should I repot now?
- I feel I should postpone any type of pruning for 2020 year. Or can I prune then I see new branch budding out. to reduce the height?
