How about this tree. Finally potted up. Wanted to see if should keep the cloud style or open it up so the trunk movement can be seen. Two angles

It's a mugo pine I've had no issues in the past with moving them at this time of the year.

This article mentions mid summer repotting to the best time for mugos. I have Only tried once, but successful.

Mugo are very fussy about roots being disturbed let alone pruned. I would never do it this time of year, possibly late August.

Give sun, and keep the foliage moist.

Most importantly.. Now that you have repotted.. Wait till next spring to do any shaping..
