Pruning pinus radiata to maintain Christmas tree shape

Hello. I'm in process of purchasing some pinus radiata seeds/seedlings for the purpose of growing them for Christmas trees. Just wondering how often I need to prune to have the shape of a Christmas tree and if I need to do anything specific to start the shaping of the Christmas tree shape. Thanks heaps

Answer: Hi Laura,

Thank you for contacting us regarding growing pine tree. Traditionally European spruce (Picea babies) is used for Christmas tree, you may trim Pinus radiate twice a year to maintain the shape, you can read more in the following link. http://www.yates.com.au/summer/how-to/caring-for-christmas-trees/#ReJW8D8vyeCiABRU.97

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
