At first I thought the stone that the pots are sitting on were all just one big pot that they were in.
Very nice!

thanks for the comments, all. for anthony. the larger measures about 25" across the roots and about 38" high. the other is maybe 20 "across the bottom and a little over 3 feet tall. both are far below their potential. pruning with hedge clippers doesn't help. age is only a guess. I've had these for about 15 years and were already this size when collected. could be 30 - 50 years old? the trees are sitting on salvaged cement pots headed for the landfill.

best wishes, sam
