Pick a front.
Eric has been growing this Pomegranite in this big pot to fatten the trunk and nebari. Now he starts working on setting the main branches.
I missed the real before photo but you can see in the photo on the left that a large root was cut out. Yes it was an ugly "big toe" that came straight out and then went into the soil. In the photo on the right you can see how big it was. A smaller root nub to the right was also removed. This is the time of year for removing big roots. Work done by John Jackson with some cutting tools and a small wood working chisel.
Gibbie's semi-cascade Elm got trimmed. Wire is next when he gets home.
Abe contemplating his Ficus. He will probably remove the Tootsie roll in the front.
