How do I care for pine trees?

Caring for Pine Trees

Pine trees are a wonderful way to keep your gardens green year round. These trees are fairly low maintenance, but there are a few things you should do to keep them looking their best. To care for pine trees, you should:

1. Be sure that you give your trees plenty of space. Pine trees like to have several feet of unplanted space around them.

2. Prune back other trees to be sure that your pine tree can get some sunshine. These trees can tolerate light shade, but don't do well in heavy shade.

3. Use a slow release granular fertilizer to fertilize your tree once a year in the late summer or early fall.
