How To Gather Pinecones
Shake Trees & Pick Up Pinecones That Fall Out
Pinecones are a Fall-only material which can be gathered by shaking trees. In the Northern Hemisphere, this will be from September 1st to October 31st, and in the Southern Hemisphere this is from March 1st to April 31st. Their drop rate seems to be rather low, as we had only 1 drop for every 10-20 trees shaken.
Pinecones Only Drop From Pine Trees
Though it may be obvious, Pinecones will only drop from conifers (pine trees). If you shake a deciduous (broadleaf) tree, you'll get an Acorn instead, so be careful!
