In front of one of the local YMCAs, there is this evergreen tree
and I swiped one of the pinecones for the kids to make a bird feeder out of. It sat in the van for several days, and after a while I noticed some seeds
falling out of it so had an "aha!" moment and realized it could possibly be *grown*! lol... I've shaken several seeds
out of the cone and saved them to grow and share.
Now if I could just determine what kind of tree
it is? I've looked online at a couple of sites that had different conifer pictures but no luck so far.
It's not terribly tall, it's probably 10 years old and probably 8 feet tall. It has that drooping habit that I never liked before but now I'm kind of getting to like it. Sorry the second picture is blurry, but is to show the orientation of the pinecones - they hang down from I believe the tips of the branches, and there weren't very many pinecones on the tree
. The needles are stiff but not sharp.
Anybody know what this is? Thanks in advance!
