My Ponderosa Pine in my back yard has its
first pine cones. Five in a ring at the top.
They are about 3 inches long and 1-1/2 inch
I would eventually like to sprout my
own new trees from the seeds. Is there
some rules as to when to pick them?
And can I plant them immediately, or do
I have to wait for next spring?
Yes, I am a proud father!
I know that Ponderosas do open without fire. Lodge
pones, like in Yellowstone, do need fire.
I have tried to get some seeds from the wild, but
the squirrels get to them first.
You can tell a Jeffery Pine from a Ponderosa, as the
stickers on the cone go out and a Ponderosa (they
will stick you!) and in on a Jeffery.
Thank you for the tips!
