The weeping pine tree is an attractive, evergreen tree that rarely reaches heights above 20 feet and can fit well into most garden spaces, with a spread that often maxes out at 10 feet across. There is also a dwarf varietal of the weeping pine tree that can serve well as a shrub or bush. Pine trees, like other tree varietals, tend to have fairly basic care needs that focus on achieving the proper levels of hydration, moisture, soil type, and pruning. The weeping pine tree has some particular requirements due to its weeping characteristic, and often needs staking and support to reach its full growth potential. It can also be trained very successfully, if desired.
A weeping pine tree will usually fare well in USDA hardiness zones 3 through 9 as long as basic growing and care conditions are met. The weeping pine tree fares best in full sun conditions in cooler climates and in partial sun conditions in hotter climates, where it should be shielded from sunlight during the hottest parts of the day. This often means situating the weeping pine tree on a north or east corner rather than a southwest direction. The weeping pine tree also requires regular moisture and is not known to be tolerant to dry or drought conditions.
As a weeping tree, the weeping pine tree will respond well to gentle continuous pruning, shaping, and training as desired. Staking should be provided as the tree grows if full height and span is desired. Mulching should be maintained around the base of the tree to keep away insects and hold in moisture between watering. The weeping pine tree can tolerate colder temperatures and snow fall but may become injured in extreme weather conditions. Fertilizer should be provided at least once annually and more frequently as needed as the tree becomes established.
