4 years ago we purchased this 10 foot tall cheery tree, the first year termites ate so much the top 2 feet died. Second year they came back and devoured another three feet. I cut it down to what is is today and removed it from a 25 gallon pot and place it in this larger bonsai pot.....This year it was re-potted. This is what it looked like last spring. A few termite left their marks in the bottom part, buts its still living!!
