GREATTTTTTT!!!!!!! ANOTHER invasive species. Spring up in a few weeks time out of nowhere, and tough as steel too. One of them sprung up locally, and its not anything like any native species that lives here. I think the species name is Duplicateous coniferous.

lol

Cellam turrim is the Latin name I saw proposed for the first one.

I hear planting a Cellam turrim limits the number of Ferrum falli that we will have to see.

Nice thing is they do not require much water.

Impressively large cones in the upper crown.

Yep, very invasive, seen some appearing in recent years over here too.

I think I got the species wrong. After close examination of the oversized cones, I believe it to actually be the closely related Ferroconiferous mimicaci. Culturally however, their invasive nature are indentical. Please correct me if I have the species incorrect.

No question.
Its a young Abies datasendensis var. telephonicus.
First mentioned by Bell anytime. The trunk is ironhard.
Please do not collect the cones, no seeds are in. :)
