help stimulate the economy, buy the tree and the pots...

In all seriousness, what are you less likely to have a chance to buy later?  That is what I would buy.

don nick lenz has stopped making pots so that is what is less likely to be able to buy later and if you do have the chance to buy some of his pots it won't come cheap but this juniper has such movement and such possibility just don't know

You seem to really want to buy the tree.  So, buy the tree and a handful of Nick's pots that you like the best. ;)

(tongue firmly planted in cheek) If the US government can be fiscally irresponsible, why can't you? ;D ;D  Seriously, get whatever will make you happiest...period.  Buying pots as an "investment" is probably a relatively bad idea, so buy the pot(s) if you like it more then the tree.

you are obviously having a problem between two choices. We all can give you our thoughts but you need to make the decision.
The tree or the pots.....
Ask yourself, do you have trees for the pots? or are you buying them simply because Nick isn't making them anymore. If you don't have a 'nned' for the pots that is a vote for the tree.
You mention that the tree will use up the budget that would buy several of Nicks pots....so this tree is fairly well on. Is it similar to other trees you have seen at like  price? If so thats a vote for the pots.....
Just my two cents

Are you sure?  His pots come up for sale fairly often.  Look around.  You will find them.  If its a particular pot you have to have, then buy it.  If its a price that's too good to pass up, don't pass. 

Whatever you do, make a decision and don't have any remorse.  Rip off the rearview mirrors and don't look back.
