There are cone crops in many areas this year. Landowners can collect cones from their own property or collaborate with neighbors to start their own seed bank. Time is getting short. Be sure you have lined up a cone processor for your collection.
There is basic information in the USFS Woody Plant Manual 727 Chapter 3. This info is south east oriented so check with your cone processor for local details. You can access the entire handbook in FSN Resource Section under Links.
