Hi Misty, To start growing pine trees from seed, gather large brown (or slightly green) cones in fall. The cones should be closed; if open, they probably have already released their seeds. Trees that have a lot of cones are more likely to have viable seeds. Lay the cones in an open box at room temperature. to release them from the cones. Hope this video helps

Knock the cones onto a piece of kitchen paper to collect the seeds, then plant them up. Don't forget to mark the pot with what you have sown and also useful the date you planted them. Best of luck!
Some pines require fire scorching the seeds for them to germinate. Check out the species to see. Also if these are open cones, the seeds have already dispersed or the birds ate them..... look for closed cones.
