Is this cedar a male or female..??
I have a beautiful (all the birds think so too!) about 60 ft. red cedar tree in the back yard that my neighbor says is causing his allergies. Now the tree produces cones so I presumed it was a female & that only the males produced the pollen that caused allergies! Am I correct? Or is this tree both? Either way, I will not consider removing this beautiful tree ... he has the illegal now to plant mulberry & russian olives in HIS backyard & the mulberry roots are upheaving his foundation & are growing into my lawn (I can feel them underneath heaving up the grass!)so he has more problems than my red cedar I think!
The birds love that tree- esp. in winter when the leafless trees don't give any protection for them.
