Pine Trees Offer Variety For Your Landscaping

Pine trees have a way of projecting a feeling of both comfort and majesty. They offer shade, windbreaking, wonderful fragrance, and a pleasing visual component for your yard. Planting pine trees is not difficult and can provide a number of benefits for your home landscaping. Here are just a few tips on choosing and planting your own pine trees.

 

Basic Pine Tree Planting and Care

 

  • Pine trees are quite drought-resistant and need additional watering infrequently during prolonged dry periods.

 

  • Fertilize the trees annually with a 12-4-8 fertilizer formulated for evergreens.

 

  • You can prune foliage in the spring to promote denser growth. Cut center pine branches at the base, and new buds will grow at this point. Avoid pruning during summer, which can draw bark beetles to the tree and can foster disease.

 

  • Pine needle mulch or pine bark will help to preserve moisture at tree roots.
