The transition from spring to summer marks decandling half the season, the time of year when we remove spring buds of black pines to produce more growth compact summer. If a tree is healthy and received a lot of fertilizer in spring, which is a good candidate for decandling. Based on this criterion, the black pine below does a good candidate this year.

Decandling selected areas of a tree can produce funny results like needles will be long spring, summer needles, short. I do not usually take this approach, but I’m curious to see how it goes. It will take at least another year after this year to produce growth still hope to be living with uneven growth for a while.
