Growing & Maintenance Tips for Pinus strobus 'Sea Urchin'

Sea Urchin eastern white pine is naturally a dense grower, however, pinching the candles mid-spring will encourage a more compact form, enabling the homeowner to maintain the desired size. 

To improve looks and airflow, these plants would benefit from periodic 'combing' (use your fingers) to remove dead material.
