is still a bit early for people living in warmer areas, but the people in colder climates may have already begun decandling. It is the right time for me to start.

The first tree turned my attention to a red pine forest. As there is a possibility I will show, I want to make sure that growth is well balanced summer. Often beginning of the process decandling dividing a tree in areas of strong and weak. I thought this forest me simplify the process a little more. The tree on the far left has always been weaker than the others. If you look closely at the picture below, you can see that in this tree buds are significantly smaller outbreaks in other trees. I decided decandle this tree Leave the weak shoots chance to catch up with others. In about two weeks, I will remove the new growth in other trees, and if all goes well, the fall will not be slightly better balance between all the trees.

When I’m done with this tree, I checked the other pines in the garden decandling to assess their needs. Outbreaks in some of them are quite out of balance. I’ll start decandling the weakest outbreaks in these trees this week. The most well-balanced trees can wait a few weeks, and my small pines can wait until early July. From there, the time will determine how vigorous summer growth this year will become.
