How to Care for Japanese Black Pines
Never plant trees deeper than originally planted in the pot. Doing so can cause rotting of the stem and death to the tree. Japanese Black Pine Trees are very drought tolerant, however they grow very slow without adequate water. Staking young trees is recommended. When tying trees to stakes remember the tree will continue to grow. Loosely tie the Japanese Black Pine Trees with several twist ties to allow for growth. Check trees every three months and loosen as needed. If this is not done, the twist tie will grow into the tree causing injury.
