himalayan cedar

Discussion in 'Gymnosperms (incl. Conifers)' started by tonydolly, Feb 13, 2006.

  1. i have a five year old eleven foot tall himalayan cedar. i have had to stake it for about two years. it is staked so that the tree is not hindered from growth, only to help during high winds.
    can someone tell me if i will have to keep it like that forever and also how do you prune a himalayan cedar without harm to the tree


    thank you
    tony

    You shouldn't have to ever prune the tree.

    Stake the tree for one year to allow the plant to establish its root system and then remove the stake. If the tree is "floppy", it's possible that the tree is not receiving enough light.

    The usual problem is deformed roots due to being left in a pot too long.
