I would have thought that they all had adjustable tensioning as well.

Of course, there's also always the chance that your chain was just too long to begin with, in which case you'll just run out of adjustment as it stretches.
But I got the idea that perhaps this was not the case from another post. Otherwise how would you even change chains? As for pine trees. when I do cut them on occasion. I try to cut them in the winter time. If it is cold most of the sap will be in the ground, and thus less mess. An old guy that I used to buy wood from before I retired and had time to cut my own told me that if you cut pine when it is below freezing it is even good to use for firewood.

It will burn fast and hot but you do not get the creosote build up that one would normally get if you burn pine that is cut in the summer.
