Do you plan on carving away all the little "knots" where the soil level used to be or is it best just to leave them on?

Henrik,

the contrary! I want more of them. They are typical for this species. This is not supposed to look like a bonsai, but like a real tree. So don't apply bonsai rules to a real tree!
