Decandling and trim are great techniques to redirect the growth of black pines. Here are some examples. Tree No. 1 After eleven years, the tree then has reached the desired size. Any further significant growth and curves begin to disappear. The objective of this stage of development is to reduce investment in the sacrifice branch and further refine the lower branches.

First I decandled spring buds on the lower branches, then I removed most of the branch exhaust. I will remove the rest of the branch exhaust after helps close a minor wound in the trunk. Black pine

Tree # 2 The goal for the tree down is to generate more low branches on the trunk. The exhaust branch helped the tree to reach its current size, but further growth is not necessary because the trunk is now the desired size. Black pine

Reducing tree branches exhaust encouraged to invest in the lower branches. When these branches are larger than can remove the exhaust branch and focus on primary and secondary branches. Black pine

tree # 3 tree down is another black pine shohin future. I would like the right to continue to thicken what I have let slip the right arm in place while the exhaust branch left is reduced. I decandled most of the lower to stimulate new buds branches close to the trunk. Black pine

The challenge here is to get outbreaks summer to develop when the exhaust branch remains strong. I have experimented with this in the past and found that is not always easy to generate sprouts summer without further reduce exhaust branch. I’ll find out in the fall of what happens with this tree. Tree # 4 The tree below is slightly longer than the exhaust branches withdrew last year. The aim is to replace the spring growth with a more refined summer vigorous growth. I decandled all spring buds and removed additional needles. Black pine
