Herein, do pine seeds need stratification?
Tree seeds will only germinate when the weatherconditions and temperatures are in their favor for survival. How tostratify Pine tree seeds: Many tree seedsrequire a cold stratification period in order togerminate while some require a warm stratificationprior to the cold stratification.
