Strange Growth?

What do you think caused the stark difference in this Japanese Black Pine’s growth pattern from one year to the next? I have some theories.
Post yours as a comment and we’ll break it down next week.

  1. looks like a whole lot of warm sunlight and an untapped attack of fertilizer. Maybe some needle trimming other than that not real sure.

  2. I’m assuming it’s the secondary seasonal growth, here in Texas, the season is a bit longer my black pines tend to have another growth but not as strong as the primary.
