About This Plant

Full sun; a large evergreen pine, with a rounded canopy and warm yellowish-green leaves. It tolerates hot, dry, alkaline soils with a relatively fast growth rate.

Deep freezes can damage the crown on younger plants, giving a gnarled appearance.

Maintenance

Pruning is always optional. In general, focus on minimizing dead, damaged, or rubbing branches. Cuts should only be made at a bud or branch; as with any tree, remove no more than 25% of the total canopy during any five-year cycle. To maintain a healthy specimen, leave the upper 2/3 of the tree’s height uncut, and never remove more than the lowest third of the tree in a single pruning period — for example, on a 12-foot tree, stick to the lowest 4 feet. Mulch with about 2” of woodchips or pine bark wherever possible. (In general, a tree’s mulched area should be six feet at minimum.)
