Pruning White Pine
Hey everyone -
We've recently moved into a house that has a row of white pine (fairly certain they are white pine) that the previous owner trimmed each year to keep it contained. I'm a proponent of letting plants achieve their natural state, but these have been trimmed for way to many years to achieve normalcy, and there's just not enough room for them to grow into what they should otherwise.
So I have to trim these back & there's not much that I can do about it unless I take them all out.
Assuming that this is the case, when is the best time for the arborist to come and do what he needs to do? Before the candles shoot? After?
Thanks so much?
