You can get Pine Cones from shaking Cedar (Pine) Trees. The probability of this Material falling is slow, so try to be patient and shake the tree as much as you can until the Material falls.

If you'd like, you can shake a tree at least 10 times, then move on if Pine Cones still have not fallen.

thank you for this!!! ^^ I was hopelessly shaking trees a handful of times and coming up with nothing. Shaking a tree a bunch pays off! I personally have found that the ratio of tree branches to acorns/pinecones is similar to the anonymous post, after shaking several trees and getting <100 tree branches I ended up with 5 pinecones and 5 acorns. Hopefully other people's islands aren't this rough! Also, every time a coin came from a tree, soon after I would get an acorn or pinecone! Good luck!

You can shake a tree way more than ten times. I got over 20 pine cones from one tree by just continuing to shake and clearing the branches that fell and filled up the spaces below. It just takes patience and time. The average was one pine cone to 10-15 branches that fell.

      I know I’m in the middle of terraforming my island so I currently have flowers everywhere in random places I’m planning on trying to make a garden for them today but don’t know how that’s going to go. Also my dodo is 7V6KH so feel free to visit Leif and ignore how terrible my island currently looks
