Can Eastern red cedar seeds germinate without birds?
I have been told that the "ONLY" way Eastern red cedar seeds can germinate In nature Is when birds eat the seeds then deposit them. I was told that seeds that fall off the tree and land on the ground can't germinate at all, Is this true? Now Im not talking someone collecting the seeds and doing It that way, Im simply talking about In nature. It would seem to me that the seeds that fall to the ground that some would be able to germinate without having to be eatin by a bird, LOL crazy question but have any of you all witnessed a berry fall to the ground and 2 or so years later know that that was the same berry that fell and germinated without having been eatin by a bird.
