I think it's planted too high.

No just right, it was always planted too deep.

Definitely too high. Planting "on the hill" is clearly a mistake.

I am ever so grateful to get free unsolicited advice from anonymous folks on the internet who obviously know so much more than I do. Mind you, this blog shows how bonsai is done professionally. If something is not as you expected you may well be on the wrong track yourself. I do plant some trees purposly on a hill because it looks much better.

I imagine this tree standing next to a dirt road that passes through small hills. The illusion works! Very good tree.

Internet shitstorms (well, one person hardly qualifies as a shitstorm)are best ignored. I would assume that you are in control of what you allow publishing, maybe you want to consider playing a scensor....
