This is a wonderful Oak Walter. I am not fond of its interaction with the pot tho. There are probably some rootage issues dictating the situation, but it could be much more dynamic if it was planted to the left of the pot instead of the right. And perhaps if the pot was turned 180. I'm not certain of what I'm saying, but perhaps you get my meaning.

I agree with Velodog2. I think it's the fact that the tree has so many severe twists that a "twisted" pot isn't the contrast the tree maybe needs to display its shape to the fullest advantage.
