    Pine question... growth without candles?

    Hi Bonsai Nuts! I got a pine from a friend some months ago and started to see some budding in the needles that were cut. It seems as if it does not grow by candles but by budding where the cut was made... so, now i don´t know if it is really a pine, or is it a different species of tree? Any help...

    Do pines bud back from internodes?

    I dont know pines well. I saw one that was maybe 1.6m tall and the space between its whorls was up to 50cm. Pinus sylvestris I believe. But I think they can grow branches from all those goosebumps? So internodes are not a concern on Pines?

    Tiny Bugs Big Pine

    Hi All - My pine has tiny beetles! Well, bugs. Not sure if they’re beetles. This white fungus(?) appeared on the trunk this season and the little buggers have followed. I’m worried because this is an old, old, OLD tree. Any help would be great. Pics attached. Olivia
