I had been thinking about collecting this tree (bush) from a hedge in my front yard for about two years now. I Finally got around to it yesterday. I reduced the top growth by about 60% but I still feel I have a way to go. I'm wondering if I can keep going now or if I should let it rest for awhile. This species seems tough as nails but I don't want to kill it either. The root ball on this tree was super shallow and fibrous, although I'm sure some of the bigger roots got root pruned with my spade. I was almost tempted to pot it up into a bonsai pot. I've never collected anything that I would have even dreamed about putting into a pot right off the bat. It seems like usually they need as much root work as they do on the top. Thoughts?
