Will Japanese umbrella pine eventually produce seed cones?

    Japanese Umbrella Pines (Sciadopitys verticillata) are occasionally found in my area as an ornamental tree, but are scarce and unusual. I'm not sure why. Right now, I only know of one, which is growing on the grounds of a suburban library. It was evidently planted 5 or 6 years ago when the grounds were renovated and landscaped. I'm wondering, is it likely that this tree will ever produce seed "cones" ? It's the only one in the vicinity. It seems to be doing well.
