Christmas trees -pine
When can we start trimming our white/scotch pines? We are in Barry county and have to leave for a month the end if June. Concerned we will be too early now or too late in August. Thanks,
Barry County Michigan
Pines should be trimmed in the candle stage. Optimum time is when the current needles are 1/2 their final final length - you can judge this by the lenth of previous year's needles. In southern Michigan, trees pines should be ready now.
