Persuading the Tree

I spent a good hour staring stupidly at a living Christmas tree trying to work out an ornamental container for the landscaper's pot. Everything I would ordinarily use was just wrong.

I realized that the tree was new to its pot, as hydrated as a conifer can get, and might easily be root-pruned to fit into a cache pot that was on the small side. Doing so would make the tree look bigger. Two minutes later the problem was solved. Since the tree is going into the garden after the holidays, the pruning procedure won't faze it at all -30-
