White pine fuits

Post  colin mackness on Thu Jun 13, 2013 5:21 pm

Hi Everyone
                 Every year along with the new needle growth I get clusters of pink cone shaped fruits surrounding the candles.Someone told me it produces these because it is in distress.This year I have more than ever.I have started feeding,albeit later this year because of the delayed spring.Should I perhaps feed during the winter at a reduced rate.I repotted the tree two years ago adding mycorrhiza.
                                                                               Cheers Colin

They're male pollen cones (Google'em) and a sign that the tree is doing just fine afaik.
