started decandling some of my 9 year old pine trees this year. Some of them lack the inner branches that I need for styling. decandling typical – the elimination of outbreaks of spring – summer produce dense growth and probably trigger some, but not all interior buds I need. Cutting even more, I hope to stimulate a lot of interior sprouts -. Branches can work with while beginning to establish primary branches of trees

Some of the new outbreaks may be outbreaks of needles, others may be accidental – both, in this case, would be welcome. My main concern is that by reducing so hard I will too summer growth. As a protection against removal of excess foliage, branches left some exhaust in place (see the first tree below). These will be removed in the fall or winter.

this approach is similar to the technique of reduction-decandling pointed out last year, but I’m cutting a little more this time. I can not wait to see the results!
