5 Needle Pine Pruning - Live Stream

I was looking for the thread for last Tuesday’s Live Stream but was not able to find it.

I wanted to know how 5 short needle pine pruning differs from the 5 long needle Limber pines discussed in the live stream.

I have a Catherine Elizabeth variety of JWP in development (planted in a pond basket) that was from Iseli Nurseries two years ago… The three is about 1 foot high and the trunk is about 1 1/4 inch thick.

There were lots of candles this year, but they dId not extend very far. However there are a lot of them and they are densely packed. The needles on the tree (old and new) are quite short (1 1/2 inch max).

Should I be removing some of the candles and if so, is now the correct time?
