As soon as the weather gets nice people stop hanging out in front of their computers and start working on their trees :) Of course in Southern California you never STOP working on your trees except for during the winter which goes from January 3 - January 7 every year (shorter during warm years)...

My black pines are already pushing their 2nd set of candles...

When do you candle there? In March? What technique are you using?

Yes I candled in March. I waited as long as possible but we had a warm spring and in some cases I feel I waited too long. Depending on the tree and what I am trying to accomplish, I can get two growing seasons in one year here. I am bud pruning right now on some of my trees - while others that need more balancing I am letting grow more aggressively and will cut back hard once again this year to push the grow back and down.
