generally, red and black pines grow once a year in spring. When they are very healthy – or when significant foliage is removed through decandling or cut -. Sent out a second wave of growth in summer
Most of my 1.5 year old pines now sent out a second wave of growth. Sometimes, this growth develops from apical buds that open early, sometimes emerge new shoots and lengthen at the same time.
I found good examples of the first case in my 3.5-year-old seedlings. The photo below looks like it was taken in the spring when apical buds usually longer, but as we can see on closer inspection, the central bud still has to give.

I hope you will to see all kinds of variations of this type for the fall, when the pines begin to decline. No need for wire cutting, plucking or break the new growth -. He continued watering and feeding is all that is required at this point
