Q.Why Doesn’t My Cedar Tree Have Bluegreen Berries On It This Year For The First Time?

Zone Eau Claire, WI | michaelfletty added on September 16, 2020 | Answered

I have a cedar tree next to my driveway. For the first time in 15 years there are hardly any of the bluegreen berries on it. Why is that? One year it had some gelatinous masses on it. That was only for one year/ I love this tree as it brings the cedar waxwings to my area. Is there anything I can do to help this tree?
