This is a pine that I took in trade for a Japanese black pine that a customer wanted. His tree has many bar branches and bad branch placement. The tree was also weak. So, What do you do with a problem tree? Plant it in the ground and ignore it for a few years. I decided to work on the pine as a landscape tree. The pictures are in reverse order. I first thinned out the tree. I then removed unnecessary branches. This is the final result. Now I will leave it alone to fill in again.T
This is a pine that my Dad started to prune in 2000. The picture of my Dad pruning the tree is the same tree that I worked on. The last picture is the tree today. The lantern in the original photo fell over in the Paso Robles earthquake. The sago palm in the picture was moved 4 feet to the right.
