"Rodents, like squirrels, will gnaw on the cones to get to the seeds hence some cones have curved hooks and prickles to protect the seeds."

Which is why you find so many trees growing underneath power and utility lines, since the squirrels (and birds) eat the seeds, sit on the wires, and then poop, dropping the seeds directly underneath.

Kevin, when are you coming to Broadway Flushing? Would love to have our nabe on Forgotten-NY.
