New Buds From August Pruning

Hey Everyone,

This is my first post. I wanted to share some success with you all because I got really excited this morning about one of my trees and don’t really have any local bonsai friends to share it with.

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around multi-flush pines because I have a few Loblolly saplings I’m trying to train into bonsai. I followed Ryan’s advice about pruning in early/mid August and this morning I noticed new buds at the cut sites! Up until now I’ve been so confused but seeing the work pay off somehow brings it full circle and it actually makes sense now! What are you all dealing with or experiencing with your multi-flush pines around this time?
