Sometimes the boys get to a certain height and split. We like to refer to them as twins.
And then this happened:
On a tree that last year contained a single male cone. There are 12 cone points (at least). Duodecaplets.
And not just regular duodecaplets.
At least 8 of them are melded together. Siamese duodecaplets.
I don't even want to think about the trimming we will have to do when 12 sets of leaves try to emerge from this poor guy after the cones fall off.
