Does anyone have any experience with eastern white pines? can you break yhe candles the same way you would on a japanese white pine?
Single flush long needle pine is the category you want to take information from. I have experimented a bunch with them but mostly in the ground. When it’s in the ground and has access to much more resources decandling will actually drive the elongation to the max of the rest of the candles.
I believe Ryan says hands off with all single flush pines until it hardens off then you can post harden prune but it’s worth double checking
There are a few members of mirai that have really nice EWP in refinement stages, if you can get them to way in!
