    Great article, i have a Black Pine that i am experimenting with and letting it grow for the most part naturally. It did fall over at one point while i was on holidays and gave itself a really nice curve on the trunk trying to get to the sunlight, though after reading your article i think this might not stick around as the tree grows so it might just be time to wire. Thanks for the tips!

    What type of wire and size for 2-3 year seedlings?

      You can use copper or aluminum, whatever you’re comfortable with. And the size really depends on the size of the trunk. Use the same guidelines you’d use for wiring branches
