White Pine Question
« on: July 15, 2014, 10:15 PM »
These are the new growth shoots extending on my eastern white pine, they don't look like any picture of candles I have seen before... is this normal? Sorry I am pretty new to the pines, this one is a 3-year old bare root I got recently from a local grower.

First pic is the whole tree, second is a close up of the new growth/candle?

Thanks, Jodie

They're just vigorous candles with long necks!
