It is February and buds of many trees are starting to push already here in California. Roots are moving and buds pushing so that means it is time to re-pot many trees. The Diamyo Oak is a prize in the collection and is over 55 years old. It was last re-potted 5 years ago in the round drum pot. My sensei has worked with me to restyle to tree last year and indicated that the orientation of the tree in the pot needed to change for the new apex and to highlight the movement in the trunk. Watch in the pictures how the process is done and the new position in the pot.

Good tip about the chopsticks protecting the surface roots. Thanks for the post.
