Pinus rigida stems acclimated more rapidly than secondary needles, but were less cold tolerant in midwinter. Secondary needles and primary needles had similar levels of tolerance on most dates. Strobili and emerging shoots were essentially identical in tolerance except c10 days before pollination, when strobili were 5.8-7.7oC more tolerant than elongating shoots.-from Authors
