I acquired an atlas cedar in early spring (it’s now late summer here in NZ) and it’s put out a heap of cones.
A couple members of my local club have suggested I remove them so the tree doesn’t put any further energy into them; however, I’m not sure of the best way to do so and they weren’t sure either.
Any tips from those of you who have one of these in your collection?
Is cone removal recommended?
If so, do I leave a bit of the bottom, or clip the entire cone and/or cone and connecting stub off?
I’ve searched the forum here and watched the few Q&A clips that mention atlas cedar but haven’t managed to find the answer.
