    Hi Guy, don´t be worry! Your cone you found is a very nice and big cone from the Canarian pine I think. The cone from Crystal is also nice, but not long enough too. Greatings from Germany

  • It is possible that Crystal has found a cone from sugar pine, Pinus Lambertiana, which occurs in California. The cones from this species can be as long 12 inches. Stop being a sore loser, guy!

  • As the witness to this record breaking submission, I must insert myself into the debate here to affirm that the measuring tape pictured above is a NEBO Tools 33 Foot Speed Reader Pro, Contractor Grade with Self-Lock, and is indeed demarcated in inches. If you look closely at the red print on the tape itself you will even see where it notes "FT & IN INCHES".
