Why do Techny Arborvitaes get green seeds weighing the tree down. Do they produce more leaves with the seeds? The tree is so heavy with seeds I am afraid that it will break.

All arborvitaes develop green berries; some more than others. The plant should be able to hold the weight of the berries it produces, which will eventually fall off or be consumed by birds. Once that happens, new growth will appear.

Best wishes with your landscape!
