I’ve a pair of Monkey Trees, both about 25 feet tall. I transplanted them about 15 years ago. One of the trees I got from a gentleman in New Westminster, who had apparently started it from a tree in Queen’s Park. I'll call this tree Charlie Brown(him?). The second tree I got from a lady in Haney who told me she bought it from a UBC garden sale or such. This magnificent tree I’ll call Lucy, and she(?) is a beauty. Not really knowing anything about these trees, although I must be doing something semi right because they seem to flourish(or at least Lucy does). This year I noticed Lucy sporting several large round cones. On the other hand Charlie Brown doesn’t seem to do much at all, kinda homely looking actually. I have read that these trees are wind germinated, and was quite hoping that I have the correct combination required for little monkey trees in their future. And how would I actually tend to that? And is there anyone who could explain the facts re Lucy getting cones but nothing from Charlie Brown? I really was hoping the Charlie Brown was male, although no cones yet...but Lucy looks pregnant as heck. When can I expect these cones to fall? Does the female produce cones that are infertile if no male present? I actually had a few Charlie Brown looking trees but sold them off because they were all spindly looking.
