DescriptionForest tree seed crops in 1958 were considerably better than those in 1957, according to observers. However, heavy and medium seed crops of some species were spotty in occurrence. Late spring frosts were probably responsible for poor or failing crops of some species in Vermont, New Hampshire, and northwestern Connecticut. Cone weevils were reported damaging the white pine crop in southwestern Maine, southern New Hampshire, and central and northwestern Massachusetts. Insects also damaged seed of white spruce in northern Maine, balsam fir in south-central Maine, and hemlock locally in south-central Connecticut.
