- The Edible Seeds Inside the Pinecones of Certain Species of Pine Trees
- Their More Difficult Harvesting, Long Time Required for Trees to Mature and Produce Pine Nuts, As Well As Their Lower Profitability Compared to Other Crops Has Resulted in Limited Cultivation
- However the Market is Growing, and from a Permaculture / Food Forest perspective that may not matter as much!
- Also Non-Timber Forest Products can be more sustainable than conventional forestry (often Clear Cutting or Slash and Burn etc) while still providing a livelihood for the local people

- A Video by the YouTube Channel "Noal Farm" Titled "Awesome Pine Cultivation Technology - Pine Cone Harvesting Machine - Pine Nut Processing in Factory" (Shows an operation (supposedly in Russia, need to check as i think this is a seccondhand publishing of the video by some clickbait-ey channel, so may be wrong) that is heavily mechanized and done in a dedicated Tree Plantation )
- A Video by the YouTube Channel "Taizy nuts machine" Titled "Processing pine nuts from A to Z | threshing, grading, shelling, peeling" (Shows basic Unit Operations and the machinery involved. It seems to be from a company that makes the machinery themselves?)
- A Video by the YouTube Channel "Matrix Farm" Titled "Awesome Pine Nuts Harvesting and Growing - Stone Pine Cultivation Agriculture Technology ▶48" (Shows Semi-Automated Tree Planting similar to that used for the Hazelnut Tree Plantout , then the associated machinery, seems to show Blanching before the peeling step)
