Pine Cone Development
Name: Melody S.
I have noticed that while many pine cones have fallen in
Spokane, WA, there are many new little pinecone buds on the trees. Will
these "buds" develop and fall this year -- or are they set for next
year? The type of trees I am referring to are long needle pines.
Cones can remain on trees for many years:
