hey, i live in the west kootenays and have a pine tree or maybe bush that has many trunks and spreads out horizontally , i would like to have it more upright and not spread out so much, how would i do that without damaging the trunks? the average stem(trunk) size is about 4 to 5 inches in diameter
thankyou, i guess i will just prune it then as it has already taken up about 10 feet of the lawn and the pollen is terrible when you brush by it. thanks for the information, this is a very cool forum, i have never done this kind of thing before.
Note that if you call it a mountain pine here nobody will know what you are talking about. And if you cut into the bare wood those parts will not grow new needles, just remain standing there as a bare branch or stub.
