I guess these are the pictures that go with the other thread?

The needles look very stiff and spiky for a red pine - have you clipped them? as the red pines over here are very soft and delicate to the touch.

Care and pruning is basically the same as black pines, but the softer needles go well with curving and feminine styling rather than the stiff, abrupt styling associated with Black pines. A full tree picture would be good to get an idea of the trunk, movement and branches all together if you have one?

cheers Marcus
