I am a bit concerned after buying a Japenese White Pine from a gentleman who collects pines for garden trees.
I bought the tree home and took for granted that the tree was in good health due to the growth on top. So after hard pruning and a first shaping of the tree to address shape and reverse taper as all candles had been left to grow. The plan was to then let the tree develop
A couple of weeks later we had rain and the drainage wasn't the best. So I ended up removing all the soil due to the smell.and amount of dead roots.
I am a bit concerned I have now over stressed the tree.
