There are too many male cones in Lemon Cypress trees like other cypress species. But why are there no female cones in Lemon Cypress trees? Why are there only male cones?

It can be difficult to pin down why one or the other sex cone appears more, but it is usually to an environmental trigger. This can be excessive heat or cold, improper humidity, or soil moisture, among many things.

This will usually resolve itself over time, though.
