Is Cedrus Atlantica Glauca self-polinating? We have a beautiful tree, about 20 yrs old, and it is putting out lots of pollen. Will we get those cute little cones?

Your Blue Atlas Cedar is in the process of developing cones. Male (pollen) cones are about 5 cm long, erect, and release clouds of yellow pollen in the fall. Female (seed) cones are barrel-shaped, upright, 5-7.5 cm long, and require 2 years to mature. Patience is all it will take!
