Pine pluck

Pinus Sylvestris … This years needle plucking started in ernest the other evening. Not having access to a garage or workshop I brought my pine inside to do a bit of work.
Needle pluck was done over 2nights. 45mins for he first stint, and 1.20hr the second evening. The Radio was on so it was a relaxing experience. Here’s the result:20131204-095057.jpg

So last night was the start of wiring…. We put the kids to bed, did the usual before I was able to bring the tree and tools inside for a wiring session:

  1. The branch you have shown is looking good with plenty of definition over its whole length. This is a job I need to do but just can’t get the time at the minute.

      Thanks πŸ™‚
      This has been one of the reasons for bringing the tree in over a couple of nights.
      I still have the apex and the back branch to wire… I’m sure a few more nights should do it πŸ˜‰
      Leaving 3yrs worth of needles on the tree has brought it on fantastically. Worth thinking about.
