Walter,
Is this the orientation of which the tree would be displayed? Or are the pictures just for comparison? I also believe "good trees" can be displayed from many or all sides. Excellent ramification on this ponderosa by the way.

Thanks,
Brian

Brian,

that's how I would exhibit it at the moment. It has not been repotted in more than 17 years. At the next repotting it will be in the right position.

BTW: To not repot a ponderosa for 30 years is normal for professionals.
