I bought a couple black pines with twisted trunks three yeats ago and ive bern letting them grow in the garden to get thicker trunks.
Any way one of them is ready to go ahead and start pruning major branches since we are within that time.
The cut i want to make is the main trunk after the densest, about a third or more of the trunk to shorten it to its final height.
Heres a pic of it from last spring.........
Its taller and thicker now and perfect to prune that branch but how exactly do cut it?
Its got several leader branches on it but which do i choose to keep and how do i prepare them and still make the tree look nice?
