Grow your own pine tree from seed and make the world a greener place. This guide is about how to harvest pine seeds (also known as pine nuts) from the pine cone for planting.
What does a pine cone seed look like?
By Prissy from Star City, AR
Kind of a smaller, flatter version of a sunflower seed.
They are kind of hidden inside the cone.
My mom and I were searching for pine cone seeds. She had just read that you shake it, but there were none there. How do we get some pine tree seeds?
It depends on the species of pine tree. Some have very small seeds, and if you are looking for the edible variety of pine nuts, I was told they only produce them every 7 years and from my experience in living among the trees, that is true. Better luck next year...
