Unlike deciduous trees, when we repot evergreens, or in this case an old Japanese Red Pine, we need to treat the roots with a little more respect. We cannot remove as much of the rootball neither can we wash the old soil off. In this post I will show you how to safely repot a pine tree using plenty of photos and accompanying descriptions.
In this post I thought I would describe the process of a recent styling I did on a collected Japanese Red Pine which I imported a year ago from Japan. Detailed in the text is the different considerations made, the work which was done and what steps will be taken to ensure the future health of the tree, post styling.
