    If you travel to FL, I'm sure many folks would let you rake them up for free!! ROTFL But in all seriousness, I have no idea where they could be purchased.

    Come for a visit and take home all you want. LOL I decorate with the pinecones from these trees as they are at least 8" tall, there from a ponderosa pine tree.
    It's always sunny here in Fl unless it's raining,LOL

    I have a wonderful tall Pine tree in my back yard. How much are you needing and what are you making I have picked up some in the past and have a small box in the pantry that you are welcome to and I would be willing to get more for you. Just let me know what your requirements are.

    A native elder I know makes beautiful baskets. She recommends picking them as soon as the fall from the tree. Here in western part of the continent you should be able to find these.
