How To Gather Pine Cones

Shake Trees & Pick Up Pinecones That Fall Out


↑ Gathering a pinecone from beneath a pine tree!!

Pinecones are a Fall-only material which can be gathered by shaking trees. In the Northern Hemisphere, this will be from September 1st to December 11th, and in the Southern Hemisphere this is from March 1st to June 11th. 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

Pinecone Tree

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!

What To Do With Pine Cones

Pinecones can be used in the DIY recipe for the Tree's Bounty Little Tree recipe!

Text dates do not match numerical dates. October is not the 12th month

I don't know if it's the same for acorns and pinecones but with the christmas lights that fall off of the pine trees (the lit ones) you can shake the same tree several times to get more. I got about 30 lights before I got tired of that. Same with branches.
