DNR forestry area offices purchasing native cones
Interest in collecting cones has been high this year, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The purchasing of cones by local forestry area offices started earlier this month and runs through October.
In 2009, ripe cones collected from jack pine and black spruce will be purchased for the remainder of this fall. The DNR will pay the following prices per bushel, which equals 9.6 gallons: jack pine, $20; black spruce, $50.
