Wild Cherry #24

The tree now is in this great pot by Christian Rastner from Austria. It is planted a bit high on purpose. In two years the tree will have corrected this and it will look right. If I had not done this the tree then would sit too low.

"Planted a bit high..."

Can you tell me what is going on here? Does the media compact over time, lowering the tree? Or something else?

I have a hard time deciding at what level to pot my trees. Sometimes they look OK, and others, too high or too low. Thanks, Walter.

The medium will compact and also the roots will compact by the sheer weight of the tree.
