Pine Plant are susceptible to dehydration and sunburn, so make a screen from plywood board and shade your tree from the afternoon sun on the west side. Also make sure there are no overstory trees around which shade your pine tree too much. Do not forget to water your pine tree frequently.
Be sure that whatever the pot is made from has holes to promote drainage, as a pine tree can easily drown in too much water. Occasional pruning is necessary to remove damage from blister rust.

Soil for Potted Plants
Plants should be grown in fertilised potting mix. Make or buy a fertilised mix which consist of coco peat moss or coconut fiber (coir), vermiculite or perlite, compost and other ingredients. A lightweight soil for potted plants needs to provide good drainage, hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.
All plants depend on light for their survival, and making sure your potted plants get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. For both indoor and outdoor containers, group plants with similar light requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
