new pot for Scots pine #20

Scots pine, Pinus sylvetris, collected in France in 1995. This tree I got last October from karl Thier. It was not repotted in ten to fifteen years, which is alright with such pines. Only it started to move upwards in the pot which was to small anyway and had too many roots by now. So I had to decide whether I wanted to first style the tree and then repot it or the other way round. I chose to first repot it into this great shell by William Vlanderen from the Netherlands. In the summer of 2004 this tree will be fully wired then.
