|Why is my vanderwolf pine have limp branches, it looks good otherwise. It is in a partial sunny location facing south. Is it possible that too much water could do that

|It should not have limp branches, no; normally it is stiffly upright. This tree Pinus flexilis 'Vanderwolf's Pyramid'needs a well drained soil so it is possible overwatering could cause root problems that would then show up in the foliage or as an overall drooping. It also should really have full sun meaning direct sun all day long or for a minimum of six hours a day including the hour of noon. It is also possible that the extreme heat is stressing it. If this is a new plant I would suggest you check with your retailer (if there is a warranty involved) and/or your county extension to try to troubleshoot.
