Of the two young black pines then what is expected to grow more next year – The one on the left, or the right
2-1 / 2 years old, black pines
My money’s on the tree right. Not because the foliage is of a darker green, but because outbreaks are much stronger.
apical bud healthy
The tree on the left is weak and has little buds. This is probably because a certain tension in the tree, as transplant or aggressive infestation. As a result, the tree is not preparing for an explosion of vigorous growth in the spring.
Weak apical bud
As expected, the lateral buds on the trees are weaker than apical buds.
outbreak healthy side
outbreak weak side – you have to squint to see
If the tips of the pines are small, you wonder why it may be the case. There is still time this summer to make corrections before these trees dormant.
