Default When to change pots?

When do I know it's time to move my plants to a bigger pot?

Pop the plant out of the container. Does it look like every inch of usable space is taken up by roots? Root bound would be a great indicator to needing a bigger pot. Also a plant slowing down on growth may give a clue.

does it matter if roots circle tightly? With trees etc. always cut them (or try to "unwrap") so they do not "girdle" other roots
