The other half

Same tree, but a staminate cone. In a lot of conifers, female cones are only near the top of the tree, but not with white spruce. They'll take pollen wherever they can get it. The white fir on the other side of the yard only blooms at the top. You might have a good idea which species do that if you look through my postings to see which ones show don't pistillate cones. Maybe I need a drone.
