After some debate about whether or not decandle one of my pines, I decided to eliminate the strongest outbreaks. I did it on June 16. Five weeks later, the new shoots are growing well.

Surprisingly, growth is strong in the upper, middle and lower branches part.

buds on the branches of the middle
buds near the top of the tree
One reason for the growth of the same in different areas is that outbreaks removed were all the same size. To help these buds along, I will start ramping fertilization and will continue to feed the tree largely through the fall.
