These are hand selected Ponderosa Pine Cones harvested from my home in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Northeastern Arizona. They are freshly gathered and are fully opened. They have not been sitting on the ground exposed to the sun and weather which over-dries and bleached them. They have been organically cleaned of debris and then microwaved to de-bug them; no chemicals have been used. They have not been oven baked as that does alter the outer texture. Heat causes the pine sap to "laquer" them. You may or may not want that effect so I've left that process up to you. And, of course these are a gift of nature so no two are exactly alike. But they are all intact and ready for your project. They vary in size from about 2" tall by 1.5" diameter to 4" tall by 2.5" diameter. The pine cones shown are approximately the smallest and the largest sizes you will receive. I pack a 10" x 10" x 10" shipping carton tightly to prevent damage from movement in the box during shipment. I do not accept returns, but if significant damage during shipping occurs, send me a photo of the damage and I will either replace the entire lot (less shipping) or refund your money. That would be your choice should significant damage occur. My experience has shown that it would be highly unlikely that the box is so damaged that all of the pine cones arrive damaged. That is why I include a few extras.
