Question & Answer

My 7 year old trees look more like a pinus radiata than the tree in label photo. Is that normal for a young tree? One of the 4 have 3 cones growing. Should we prune those low branches off ? From: BOX HILL SOUTH VIC

Young trees like quiet different to older trees. As they mature they loose that bluish leaf colour and do look more like a Pinus radiata. Yes I would prune the lower branches. They can take up to 12 yrs to bear nuts.

Inspired by the Ringing Cedars books written by Vladamir Megre. This tree will provide me with pine nuts, still a few years from harvest. Likes Victoria's weather and survived the long hot summer, budding now August 2009. Research pine nuts, they are so good for health and skin. My son's teenage acne cleared after taking pine nuts in his diet for six months.
