This tree was actually a root of my big pomegranate when I noticed it couldn't fit in the pot I just cut the root and plant it to see what would happen to it. well it sprouted and it is doing great.

This one was repoted this year (maybe I shouldn't have) but it starting to show signs of growth too.

I would be grateful for any design insights about it

The "cut" shown in the above picture is from a root I removed, I initially had the soil higher to cover it but it went down with my first few watering, I will attend to it next spring I guess

I feel this guy has good potential but not sure how to drive it from here other than "let it grow"

Cheers

Yep, I'd let it grow a while. Then later you can choose which branches you want to keep. I see several more buds around the other side. Eventually you can carve and hollow it out some but you won't want to do that until you see where your branches come from and it's had a while to grow strong. I imagine @bonhe will have good advice to offer you. Good luck with it!

Tree had an "Accident" dog Knock it down and it the substrate fell so I had to "repot" it again today without touching the root off course...

I hope it will recover
