Pinus coulteri....I think it's Ed's favorite so he says he's going to drive these cones around for a week or two.

The cones of this Southern California native are huge, heavy, vicious, and very cool. Unfortunately a large specimen died this year. Today a project team cut it down, up, and hauled it away. They salvaged these wicked cones.The tree must have sensed its mortality because typically it has had only 2,3, maybe half a dozen cones per year.
