The dangers of a healthy Tree:
Having shown you a progression for my Scots pine over a few posts I have now discovered some of the dangers of a strong healthy tree!!!this year the tree has been extremely strong throwing lots of new back buds. Worryingly the growth rate was far faster than expected. During our club meeting members discovered that the wire had bitten in quite badly!!!
Straight in there with the wire cutters I’ve able to rescue it some what but its not been without damage as you can see!!
I’ll be watching closely now on all the other branches for the same issues 😦
Keep an eye on your trees during the growing season !!!!!
