I guess I always need to have something to worry about. The other day I noticed one of our spruce trees was just covered with an enormous mass of cones. I know that often when plants are severely stressed they put out a lot of seed because they realize they are not long for this earth. I really don’t know if that is the case with this spruce, but I do find it worrying.
The spruce is located in the same area which a couple of years ago was saturated with water. I think it was all that water that killed a big old cedar, so I am wondering if this spruce was also effected. Other nearby spruce don’t have such an over abundance of cones.
I guess time will tell.
