I find here in PA is with White Pine. But I hear lots of reports of it being collected under Jack Pine. (It’s a fairly popular edible around here.)

Not sure about “White Pines”, but possible…

Thanks for your help. White pines are a possibility, but I honestly can’t recall. Do the needles in the photo help? Mark
