Japanese Black Pine candles

The candles on this JBP seem to be very long for this time of year -April - should I decandle now?..Thanks for your comments

You can break the top half from the longest candles to reduce the vigor in those areas but hold off on decandling until the normal time.

My garden looks crazy with candles these days!

Jonas…ok…will follow your advice…lots of candles around for sure!.. as a side note i also discovered an old italian liqueur made with the immature cones and candles of pine and spruce…going to give it a try …!..never let anything go to waste! Thanks!

I’m also in the bay area and my pines are going bonkers as well, they’re really enjoying the weather this year!
