2017-03-24: Emergency re-pot into same pot with no root trimming. Rain torrent beat out 2/3 of soil. Holddown wire not super-tight, so wired the trunk to pot; will leave for some months.
2015-03-04: Reported into a smaller pot! (Bare root, no wash, trim under-trunk, wood hold-down wired) Was root-bound with dead root and dark sandy spots of soil.
