Pruning, grows a better tree
~ a few Notes:
We enthusiastically support people to enable the DIY effort..
and actively promote the de-stressing, meditative qualities that pruning and pruned trees bring.
Everyone should prune their own trees. At least once…
Pruning is easy, ..Choosing ‘What to prune’ where and when… is not as easy…
developing an overall plan for pruning the pine..
Pruning older established trees, is easier than starting them from the beginning.., but changing direction, is often impossible..
to learn about pruning and phenology, keep an eye on natural signs and phenomena..
..pruning feels good, being holistically beneficial as another aspect of healing and therapy gardens..
… watch and observe Nature, because, “Nature is the Foundation..”

Way-finding Pine Pruning

.. Yes, we prune residential pine at all ages and for many purposes,

from aesthetic sculpting, through functional to rejuvenation of ancient pine

from natural shapes to finished edges and topiary

~ known as Shin, Gyou, Sou pruning:

Shin is Manmade, high maintenance, and eye-catching

Gyou is the Man : Nature inter-relationship, and medium budget

Sou is Natural pruning, easiest maintenance afterwards.

.. pruning at the starting out phase is pretty much all the same, and different decisions can be made if the needed result is known
