    Description

    Mature cones of slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm. var. elliottii) and longleaf pine (P. palustris Mill.) can be easily bisected along their longitudinal axes with the hydraulic pine cone cutter described. This cutter eliminates the two major problems of earlier models--undue operator fatigue and the necessity of soaking mature opened cones prior to cutting. The tool was developed to aid in evaluation of damage to pine cones caused by seedworms (Laspeyresia spp.)and coneworms (Dioryctria spp.).
