I would treat a lodgepole like a white pine personally.  I have a few of both.  I treat them like other mountain trees.  Some of the people from the Rockies and West Coast may be able to answer this question better in terms of candle work (if any).  Most lodgepole I'm interested in are potential bunjin trees.  I have not yet seen one that had dense pads or needed to stack shoots to keep a full appearance like the Japanese white pine I posted.
