Wow John, there are some monster trees in there.  I can't imagine keeping up with all that stock. Thanks for the peek!
What is the tree in the 1st pic, blue pot?

Tridents. I have 14 or 15 tridents that were in the ground for 20+ Years. The two pictured here have no downward growing roots(except around the edge?). They could go into 1" deep pits if you wanted them to. Base widths on these two are blue pit 22"+ and the brown pot 25"+. Here are some that will most likely go into 2'x2' boxes inMarch. They are in 24x36" tubs now.

Be careful around those trees if they get hungry.....They look like they could swallow an arm whole. ;D

Korean Hornbeam reconstruction project. This is one of my California trees. Before and after cleanup (I removed leaves first).

I usually only post pictures if fairly well developed trees, but I spend most of my time developing stock, I just don't take ad many pictures as some do.....

Here is an update on the Japanese Larch i posted on Dec.25 with the humming bird and Garnet. I was working with Boon over the weekend repotting. The second picture shows the tie into the pot. Last picture is after light cutback. A little light  wiring will be done this summer. After seeing this last photo and noticing the light shining through the trunk, i went out to check if I had lost my Garnet.  It had been dislodged, but was still in the cavity in the back of the tree.

The larch is really well balanced.  Nice silhouette.
