As a preface, my trees are mostly yamadori shore pine, yam mountain hemlock and field Scots Pine. I live on Vancouver Island British Columbia.
I think I’m over cautious when it comes to wire bite. I think wire scars, from my own experience, are extremely unsightly and so far permanent. I do have trouble keeping branches set in place
Id love to know more about the best time to apply wire and what are the signs that the wire needs to come off soon or ASAP. What are your experiences with wire marks? Do they sluff off over time as bark accumulates? Do they become more natural looking?
Thanks Team Tree!!
