Hi , I have a mature Monkey Puzzle tree which is at least 35 years old [ possibly older ] and now stands at approximately 30 feet tall . It has retained its original shape and lower branches unlike others that I see . In the last few years it has developed pods [ green which then turn brown ] which are about the size of a large orange . Can you tell me what they are and is there anything I should do about them . I guess that they have something to do with reproduction but there are no other monkey puzzle trees near by , thanks , Bill Halliday



If they are towards the top of the tree, they may be cones, though they usually grow bigger than that, up to rugby ball size!

How do I say thanks?
