Photo of leaf and immature cones

If still living, the bark is off-white and striking in the forest. After tree death, the bark starts degrading, loosing foliage and becomes progressively more brown. Bark usually gone within 2-5 years after tree death.

I’m not very good at identifying trees yet. If I can get a photo of a leaf from it or a zoom-in on the bark would that allow someone to id it properly?

Is that what these are growing on? Looks like a delicious fruiting!

Thanks!
