Alberta spruce problem

Zone 06472 | Gpm added on June 18, 2017 | Answered

I have a 10 year old Alberta spruce and it has a different pine branch growing out if it. It's not next to it but growing from it. How does this happen?

This is a stem that has reverted back to a parent stock. Prune it from your tree.

Sometimes plants revert to the rootstock plant or parent plant. I'd cut the odd branch out
