A powerful base with good movement in the trunk.  If you can tame the top this will be a very nice bonsai.

Got this one into a mica pot for future development.  Removed a branch, and was able to saw through a big root to recuce the T-Bar  I found when I removed it from the anderson flat.  It had good root growth, and this is just a first step.

Dan, both alive and well for now.  I haven't done any styling with them yet.  The one pictured here was hiding deadwood behind the bark in 2 spots I wanted to bend.  I may need to take it to a workshop with someone who knows what they are doing to make those bends.  Thanks for asking
