Last fall, on the edge of a field in northeast Alabama, a small team of scientists and volunteers, sporting bright yellow hard hats, picked through the branches of a shortleaf pine tree.

They were collecting pinecones, and the seeds nestled within. It was one of several carefully selected spots where the cone-collecting process took place over a few short weeks across northern sections of the state and into Tennessee.

It’s not easy work.
