The pine tree is typical in Mediterranean forests. This is a big tree that has adapted to Mediterranean garden spaces.

We tend to think that pine pruning is expensive but this needn’t be the case. It only needs pruning every 7 or 8 years compared to other trees which need a more frequent prune.

When we prune a pine tree we always bear in mind its location and the following factors:

Pine canopy thinning.

We have to thin it so that the wind can pass through it.

Pine canopy reshaping

The tree has to be reshaped in the areas where we do not want it to grow so much due to construction, shade, gradient, etc. If it is a young tree, we have to remember what aspect and height is the one we want.
