Silver Birch re-potting

this tree has got to my collection in 2012 more pictures from progression

it has been pot into wooden box with bad mix ( beginners mistake). it was growing ok but because it was 4 seasons in the same soil and pot without any check I decided that it will be worth to re-pot it to new mix/pot and sort some roots too. Here we have some pictures.

before I attempt to re-potting

out of the pot.

after clean out all old soil

two heavy roots/stubs need to be removed

and job done

those two heavy cuts sealed by charcoal

and the tree in new home. maybe not the right angle but it will adjusted in next re-potting session.
