A candle is a term used to describe the new growth of a conifer, such as a pine or a spruce. The candle is the part of the branch that extends beyond the previous year's growth, and it usually has a lighter color and softer texture than the older needles. The candle is where the tree produces new buds, needles, and cones, and it is an indicator of the tree's health and vigor. The length and number of candles can vary depending on the species, age, and environmental conditions of the tree.
