Saw this pine broom last week in Houston, Texas.

Could it be P. taeda (loblolly pine)? Thanks!

Pics have appeared now! Could be P. taeda, could be P. elliottii, needs a clearer view of the cones to be sure.

Thanks! Looks more like P. taeda now; needles consistently in 3s fits that (mix of 2s and 3s for P. elliottii)

Resin, thanks for the ID confirmation!

Rob, no plans to harvest this one, although if I lived in Houston I might try it.
