The cones of Japanese white pine attach almost sessile to the stem, usually in clusters, and appear to stick straight out from the stem, almost horizontal. The cones are abundantly produced even on young trees and remain on the tree for 6 to 7 years. They are thick, slightly longer than broad and a rich reddish brown color. Cones are an excellent identification feature for this plant.
