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...
