Update on pinus nigra and decandling

Hi all

Little update of progress of my black pine

Tree was de-candled and shortened long old needles around 2 weeks ago. Didnt take photos yet but in some places new buds showed up.

Before:

After:

Ps. Jonas could you move part of this topic to shares section?

Thanks for starting this thread Mateusz. I have learned so much from this! I just bought a couple of Mugo pines this year and decandled and wired them. I left ample branches for future development but now I think I might need to selectively remove a couple. What a great tree you have going there!

looking good, the picture shows a bit of wire that might be getting too tight in a few places. Came to mind because i spent most of the day removing wire from JBP that i had wired up new apex’s on this spring.
thanks for posting.
