Description:

Growing on a rock at a steep slope (Platteklip gorge), so no way to analyse leaf-bundlets. Found many obss of P. pinaster and the cone would support that guess. But: alien pines are many specs from US in EU, I don't know how that is in the Cape Provinces.

Instead of buzzsawing these have been frilled. I would have thought it would take much longer. Also the seeds are now dispsersed far and wide rather than being contained to under the canopy.
