Ponderosa Pine questions

Post  Joe Hatfield on Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:53 pm

I have had a Ponderosa in my collection for a full season now. It was collected roughly 3 seasons ago and I feel it is ready for some grooming and shaping. I'm unsure as to when the best time in my region (6a-7b) Philadelphia Pennsylvania USA, to do some needle plucking. I do know the wiring and hard trimming should be done in fall through winter. But it's the needle plucking I'm really unsure of. I have seen and heard others on the forum doing decandeling but, I'm unsure if this applies to me. I do not have any lengthy candles. Maybe I am wrong in thinking that this tree is growing well and ready for work. Last year in June it had Pronounced candles and this year I'm Not seeing the same thing. I will include last years photo and this years.



Thanks


Last year







There are other pictures with larger candles, I just cant find them.

Here is this year.
