The pine, the pine

It is a 2-needle pine with long needles – 4 inches or thereabouts I think. Maybe next time I’ll include a snip of the needles along with the cone and mushroom.

Could be Knobcone or Ponderosa pine; or Italian spruce-pine. Knobcones usually don’t release their cones or seeds until during a forest fire. I have an Italian spruce-pine in m backyard. It starts out looking like a miniature spruce tree (sometimes used as small Christmas tree) but later developes much longer needles at the node of every spruce-like needle.
