I take a knive an cut it out and have done root prunung which I as going to do anyway. Where's the problem? It is amazing how many people refuse these pots for the reason you mention and then they do root pruning on their trees at every repotting.

I've had good results using a hose pipe to wash way some of the substrate (I use pumice) to allow me to remove trees from similar pots.
