It has to be a small tree, like a miniature. Big ones eventually outgrow the 
containers.  I have been starting small trees in pots for a while.  These are 
nursery pots that are 3 ft across and 2 1/2 foot deep.  By the third year if 
the tree has taken off, you have to transplant it.  If you do severe pruning, 
you still have to root prune every few years.  The pot, if a permanent item, 
has to be raised off the ground or have something under it so the roots do not 
go thru the pot into the ground.
