Pine Tree

vegas814 added on September 11, 2017 | Answered

I have a young pine tree, maybe 5 feet in height, it has been growing great. This year the top leader has grown to about two feet with no side buds but a top bud. Being that it is September, should I just let it go or should I cut the leader down a bit before cold weather sets in? It looks kind of strange with the leader so high with no side buds for branches.
